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.

Generator and Dust

Generator and Dust

We heard a number of generators running. This one outside the registration office wasn’t enough for them to get their computers going. They made a note that we were leaving and that half a tree had fallen on our cabin — but the note was handwritten and our bill wasn’t settled.

The air got dusty whenever any kind of vehicle moved by. The mud from the flood dried to a fine powder that was easily raised — and then hung and spread all around. I’ve seen a flood after a hurricane where everything showed some kind of water mark. After this one everything looking powdered.

Bombay Beach, CA. Zilladon and I went exploring around the Salton Sea.

Did you spot the people in the background? Never been here without encountering other photographers.
