reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.

Parking Slob B 3-20-13 3

Parking Slob B 3-20-13 3

This parking slob has both parked his/her Ford Explorer in a space marked "Compact", and parked it over the line into the next space. By the rules the photographer plays by, no SUV is a "Compact" – and egregious parking by slobs like this guy/gal is why! Taken in the Grocery Outlet parking lot in Berkeley, CA by a Nikon F4s with a Nikkor 28-80mm ƒ 3.3-5.6 G lens on Fuji Press 1600. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010,. Dust reduction, contrast and brightness improved in Paint Shop Pro X2.

The Photographer drives an SUV, BTW – a Jeep Grand Cherokee…
