We now collect so many photos and so much video with our smartphones, yet we don’t have the time to create interesting content with that media. This app is designed to address that issue. So, in a matter of minutes, here is what it did from media I shot yesterday.
The promise of technology was to democratize the world and bring us all together. Hmm… I’m thinking it has done more to place people in isolated silos than bring them together. I’ve been exploring this notion for some time.
I thought of our nation’s social studies teachers when I saw this excellent video on the civic responsibility we have to teach social studies as the study of power. It’s an interesting take on middle and high school education, at the very least.
During the flight, we landed the helicopter high atop Mount Tasman and got out and walked around, sinking up to our knees in the snow. The views were expansive—all the way to the Tasman Sea. The snow from Mount Tasman creates the Fox Glacier. Seeing the snow from above cracking and creating thousands of enormous crevasses was a first for me.

Optimization een working like a madman on my blog—optimization under the hood. You know: part of the 10 year celebration has been sprucing things up a bit moving forward. Aside from the new look, which is temporary, here’s a list of some of the improvements: MediaTemple Is Now the Temple of Doom At one point […]
The entrance to the north bay is through the “Golden Gate” under the Golden Gate Bridge. The area was once owned by the military but was given to the National Park Service in the 1970’s I think. Today, it’s commonly referred to as the Headlands, over 66,000 acres of gorgeous, undeveloped wilderness. I rather enjoy […]
The hardest part of creating this short video was deciding what to leave out! Unlike any video project I’ve ever posted, this one actually has some video footage in it: from my iPhone (in horrible wind and weather) and 5Dmk2 (in a shaky helicopter). Even with advanced stabilization in post, the footage is, well, interesting! […]
