Overt technological change witnesses an enduring tradition

"In 2005, visitors packed into the expansive boulevard leading up to St. Peter's Square as Pope John Paul II's body was carried into the crowd for public viewing in the days following his death. Taken nearly two years before the iPhone debuted, the photo is striking now for its appearance straight out of another era.

For anyone who has ever been to a concert, the photo at bottom, taken Tuesday night as Pope Francis made his inaugural appearance on the Vatican balcony, seems almost ordinary. The two, taken together, reflect a world changing, even as some ancient traditions stay the same."

(Carlo Dellaverson, 13 March 2013, NBC News)

Trinidad Cuba, Folkloric Ballet

"Music fills every corner of this culturally rich town. In an empty courtyard on weekday mornings the Trinidad Folkloric Ballet moves to Afro–Cuban rhythms, preparing their repertoire for audiences at home and abroad. 'Some of our dance traditions are similar to those in other parts of Cuba, but others are specific to here,' says Gisela Zerquera Calderón, the group's director. 'We think it's important to keep them alive and show them to the world'"

SmartGate: New Zealand & Australia passport control self-processing

"SmartGate gives some travellers the option to self–process through passport control. It uses the data in the e–Passport and face recognition technology to perform the customs and immigration checks that are usually conducted by a Customs officer.

An e–Passport has a microchip embedded in a hard plastic page and an international e–Passport symbol on the front cover. The microchip contains the same personal information that is on the photo page of the e–Passport, including an electronic copy of your photograph."

(Aotearoa New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs)

70 Billion Pixels Budapest: 360 degree panorama image

"The observation tower of János–hegy [the Elizabeth Lookout on János Hill is], the highest vantage point of Budapest with a 360 degree panorama, was an obvious location. It also allowed us to take on previous world records in both the 'highest definition image' and the 'largest spherical panorama' category. When contacted, the Council of District XII informed us on the upcoming anniversary of the tower. We agreed to cooperate in commemorating the September 2010 event by setting up new world records–give them our best shot if you please. ."
