El día más aburrido del siglo XX.

Sunday, April 11, 1954
Nobody significant died that day, no major events apparently occurred and although a typical day in the 20th century has many notable people being born, for some reason that day had only one person that might make that claim: Abdullah Atalar – a Turkish academic.
True Knowledge is building the first internet-scale platform for answering the world’s questions.
Our goal is to power a new kind of search experience where users can access the world’s knowledge simply by asking for the information they need in a way that is completely natural to them; just as if they were talking to another human being.
Instead of a list of links that may or may not be relevant to the query, the user experience is an immediate, perfect response, giving them exactly the information they are after.
Our unique semantic technology has been many years in development. It understands user questions, represents knowledge in a way that the system can understand and process and can combine existing knowledge to infer new facts and answer questions it has never seen before.
Powering the platform is also a database of facts: a unified representation of the world’s knowledge containing factual, common sense and lexical knowledge. We can already answer trillions of questions and as this knowledge base grows, we understand and answer more and more.

Harper’s Bazaar, December 2009: «Twilight»
People of all ages sunk their teeth into the Twilight saga. At the forefront of the vampire phenomenon were Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who graced Harper’s Bazaar’s December subscriber cover in a rare shot together. Harper’s Bazaar was the only monthly magazine to feature the couple on a cover. While the epic image played on the idea of courtship, it was given extra heat due to their real-life romance.

The Atlantic, May 2010: «Fat Nation»
Marc Ambinder uses the story of his own battle with obesity to comment on America’s long and losing war against fat. We wanted an image that presented obesity as a truly national epidemic, one that would plant the problem squarely at the feet of Americans. Alex Ostroy’s image of an obese Statue of Liberty highlights the national scope of the problem with a dash of wit.

National Geographic, April 2010: «Water: Our Thirsty World»
To create a just-dunked effect for the cover of National Geographic’s April 2010 special issue, «Water: Our Thirsty World,» executive editor William Marr and staff photographer Mark Thiessen started with a shiny slab of white Formica coated with car polish. Artfully spritzed water drops beaded up and posed through many lighting experiments and photos, then the famous yellow rectangle and the cover type took their places in the image. That’s not all that happened, but the rest has something to do with magic.
New York, September 28, 2009: «HATE»
New York’s Obama «HATE» cover takes Shepard Fairey’s campaign «HOPE» poster and turns it on its head to reflect the political realities of fall 2009. A collection of words used on signs at Obama protests («imposter . . . Hitler . . . parasite-in-chief») were hand-painted and then digitally placed onto a photograph of Obama, while the word «hate» replaces «hope» at the base of the image. The cover caused controversy for scrawling hateful words across the face of the president, and it certainly showed in stark fashion the public vitriol that emerged so loudly in some quarters in the months since Obama’s election.
