Check Out the ’60 Minutes’ Piece On the GoPro and its Billionaire Creator

Last night’s episode of 60 Minutes saw the ever-inventive news program delving into several different stories all tied to the world of photojournalism and how we capture and interpret the world we live in – with none so visually stunning as Anderson Cooper’s report on the rise of the GoPro camera and its billionaire creator, Nick Woodman. From chronicling the initial idea of wanting to allow amateur surfers a tool to make it appear that they were “pros” themselves, chance encounters with people fascinated with what was then just a “wrist camera” ultimately served as the R&D for the product we have today. For people interested in both innovation and documenting the world around you, this is a must-watch segment.
