After having seen Jupiter Ascending on a recent flight, I've realized that all these years I was much too hard on David Lynch's Dune.

The Wachowskis managed to teach me something new about how bad a movie can be.

OK, this is messing with my head. So what color do you see this dress as?

Black & White (using vsco's Tri-X Pan Film settings). I think I like this one better, but between the ages of 10 and 21 I pretty much only shot Tri-X, so it feels kind of like coming home --- or at least coming back to a place that looks like home, but is actually made of plastic.

Ben, you should really consider moving a quarter of your troops to South Florida.  The changing of the NY seasons is bewildering to behold and, a quarter century of seeing it would give you the eye for it.  But palm trees and the exquisite - though man-made - sculpturing that goes into them, have got them beat by several hairs' nanowidth.

It's really beginning to feel (and look) like Spring. Finally.

Aha! Thanks. Dogwoods were a false positive after some Googling.

I don't know why this is the first year I'm really noticing them.

The ACM's sponsoring a conference for practitioners in computing, Applicative. It's in New York, February 25-27. The content looks great - meaty topics by experts in systems and application development.

I'm going, and if you're interested, you should too!
