News flash of late! RC Concepcion, the mad genius of the internet, the teller of tales, who speaks in a whole variety of internet/computers tongues, is now the Director of Content and Education at KelbyOne. I personally think that title is a little dry, in terms of encircling and describing the ebullient spirit of the man, his penchant for bubble baths, his abilities to turn a dinner napkin into a website, his knack for making impossibly convoluted stories both interesting and, at long last, coherent, and the sheer, explanatory brilliance of his ability to teach even the most arcane and remote aspects of the internet wilderness in down to earth terms.
Example…whilst teaching a bunch of admittedly older folks (think, well, me) he encounters a question. “What’s a website?” Hmmm. He explains: “Remember when you were a kid and you made photo albums with all the sticky corners and put your pictures in them? It’s like that. IN THE SKY!”
So, while, Director of Content and Education is explanatory, I think of his potential in more florid, exclamatory terms. Perhaps something like, Lord of the Pixels, or Overlord of the Digital Domain. But, they didn’t ask me. Suffice it to say he’s a good teacher. I can think of no higher praise.
The pic up top of course was a goof shot we did together as a class demo at our yearly extravaganza at Jade Mountain, Anse Chastenet in St. Lucia. RC has the wonderful good fortune to be married to Jenn, one of the most beautiful dancers I have ever worked with. Both good sports, they jumped into the tub while the class lit the room. They did however, draw the line at my idea of putting plastic bagged, gelled Speedlights in the bubbles with them:-)
