APPS Division Semis, Round 2: Clock vs Camera
« on: Dec 18, 2014, 12:01 am »
Today we have a matchup between two Apps that are often taken for granted. It can be easy to forget that both of these teams are actually apps, as they come pre-installed as part of every smartphone's operating system.

In a way this match is the stage manager's personality test. At stake is the innate split personality of the stage manager: relentlessly orderly, but also extremely creative. Aware of what's coming up in the near future, but focused on retaining archives and preserving what's gone before.

The winning team here will go on to face the other remaining default stock application, Text Messaging, in the division final. Cast your votes well! We'll see you at the close of Sunday.

These keep getting harder and harder! I'd hate to go through a show without either one. However, I'll have to say I definitely NEED a clock more than a camera. I can sketch out things or write notes rather than take pictures (even if having a picture of that prop-laden table is a lifesaver), but I don't have an innate sense of time. A clock to time things, and give breaks, is essential.
