". . .I’d like to be able to set keyframes in 3D space and then adjust bezier curves to control interpolation through those keyframes, with the ability to apply eases inter- and intra-keyframe, allowing dynamic motion effects both on a per key basis and globally for the entire flight track.  And then of course to do the same thing with the gimbal, so I could tweak the shot until it’s exactly what I’m looking for. . ."
Slaps palm of hand to forehead. Simultaneously brilliant and ironic! All those years of coding up virtual cameras to fly right in CGI, and now  +Gary Yost has circled back with an idea to apply the exact same tech to an actual flying camera . With geo-tagging and path geometry import/export this could be a match-move innovation. We are truly living in the science fiction future of our teenage years.
#drones #DJI #aerialphotography  
Gary Yost has been photographing people and nature for over 40 years. Initially crazy enough to attempt a career in photography, he became sidetracked by computer animation software development in the 1980s and was responsible for the first open-architecture 3D animation systems before leading ...

". . .The #BDS movement inflames rather than enlightens global dialogue around the peace process. #Israel invests heavily in #Palestine ; the rest of the world doesn’t bother. . ."
A push to “boycott, divest and sanction” (BDS) Israeli companies has limited impact on the credit profile of Israel, yet it directly harms its intended beneficiaries, the Palestinians. The BDS movement, including universities, pension funds and leaders of some Christian denominations (to the chagrin of many congregants), ignores economic data. And it coincides with a disturbing rise of violent anti-Semitism across Europe.

Good interview. #DJI is doing some masterful CYA with the #GeoFencing firmware updates. Hope they are including National Parks and sensitive California Coastal areas in that database as well. Responsible use by professionals and hobbyists is the elephant in the room of course. Fear and ignorance will inflame public outrage anytime some ass-hat turns his flying camera into a public nuisance or annoyance. Sadly though, it is only a matter of time before cheap, commodity off the shelf #drones get hacked into weapons by lone wolf psychos or organized terrorist cells.

Just because it got approved does not mean anyone will want to grow it. And if anyone decides to grow it, good luck selling any #fruit. How do you like them apples? I am generally not afraid of #GMO. This "product" however does not serve any public interest, it's sole purpose is to deceive. These GMO #apples basically resist turning brown when sliced or bruised, tricking consumers into thinking the apples are fresh or undamaged. This is fraud.
It will probably be several years before the fruit, which resists browning when sliced or bruised, shows up in grocery stores.

Hat tip to +Dave Besbris for the share. Indeed, #Polio might sadly be next. Uninformed hipster choices encouraged by celebrity narcissists and dollar driven junk science have dire consequences. Failure to prevent 60,000 central and south American unaccompanied #children from illegally entering the country recently might have something to do with the origin of this #Measles outbreak, don't ya think?
"Artisanal Vaccines" FTW
There are schools in the wealthiest parts of Los Angeles where the vaccination rate is on a par with that of South Sudan

+Jim Cramer made me some #RealMoney on the #turnaround call, but I sold too soon! I'm skeptical about nine bucks anytime in the very near future, but yes, it is now a growth story. My nicely remodeled local #RiteAid store has been raising prices and decreasing card member discounts to the point where they are losing my business on some items I can get better deals on elsewhere. Rite Aid needs to up their security, my local store is an easy target for shoplifters, I've seen several incidents. Also, they are gonna have to address the tobacco and alcohol sales; can't honestly claim to be in the health care biz and sell addictive poisons too.
Game, set, match: Rite Aid is now a real growth stock. Stock will go to $9
Rite Aid agreed on Wednesday to acquire pharmacy benefit manager, Envision Pharmaceutical Services for $2 billion in cash and stock. TheStreet's Jim Cramer says that's what made CVS into the great healthcare company that it is and not just a drug store, and Rite Aid can do the same. Stock will go to $9 because the combination of pharmacy benefit manager and how well the stores are doing up front plus their amazing remodeling is going to make it s...

Not a #bubble that will burst, but certainly there are a few nutty and overvalued recent #IPOs in the tech sector that are balloons (footballs) ready to partially deflate. #GoPro for instance has already lost half it's over-value, plenty more one trick ponies and hyped hipster billion dollar piggy banks out there ready to be cut down to size in an orderly fashion without blowing up the entire tech sector.
I don't know -- is Apple at 15x a tech bubble? NO!

Why don't you look at the actual price earnings multiples and then come back to me? Stay focused.
With the Nasdaq approaching its 15-year high some worry we may have a tech bubble on our hands. TheStreet's Jim Cramer says we don't. He says that what's different this time around is that companies have actual earnings, users, revenue and tangible results to point to. With Apple at 15x, Microsoft at 13x, Cisco at 14 or 15x -- that's the opposite of a tech bubble, he says. If you add up all the companies that are really selling at so-called infin...

By the same virtue, just because they are brown doesn't indicate an apple is bad. People naturally prevent browning via some lemon juice and then go on to use the apples.
Some people are just afraid of cosmetically impure food.

$TSLA on sale today, buy on the dip. #JimCramer   has been nay saying this stock since the IPO. Apple is Apple, slave labor and tax evasion / money laundering keep it going strong as Tim Cook poops out the final two or three product innovations bequeathed to him from the late great Steve Jobs. #Tesla   is the future, #ElonMusk   is Edison, Jobs, Einstein, and Ford embodied in one Iron Man genius suit.
I know Apple, you aint, $TSLA, you aint no $Aapl!
A ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine seems to be helping the bullish sentiment on Wall Street. The peace deal takes effect February 15.

Sad news! #BobSimon; eloquent, humble and brilliant correspondent,  killed in a horrible car wreck. Unlike shamed NBC pretty-boy liar #BrianWilliams, Bob Simon actually experienced and reported on the horrors of war many times in his career and was even captured and held hostage by enemy forces. I disagreed with many of his 60 Minutes story angles but admired his writing style and understated professionalism. #RIP

Big corporate brother apparently really is listening, #VoiceRecognition technology for lazy channel surfers now exacts an unacceptably high price; every last shred of your so-called #privacy . Talking to your #TV or paranoiac imagining that the TV was an instrument for the government or space aliens to spy on you used to be a hallmark of mental illness, cliche insanity. ". . .An Internet connected TV that eavesdrops on the stuff you say when you’re sitting on the sofa is just the latest overreaching privacy intrusion to come to light in the tech sphere. . ."
As the number of connected devices -- aka the Internet of Things, aka the sensornet -- proliferates so too does the number of devices leaning on voice..

Lifetime Member California Rare Fruit Growers
I'm actively seeking new opportunities, full time or freelance on-site or remote from here in San Francisco. I've worked at TV stations, networks and post facilities in every studio, field and engineering capacity. These days I'm in technical and marketing writing, as well as video editing and voice-overs. I've sold and supported consumer and professional video hardware/software/services. In the past I've worked at web casting, computer animation, post-production, broadcast operations and management. My sweet spot is with high-end media technology as an expert operator, effective sales rep and accurate, accessible technical and marketing writer. I've had many terrific jobs, often with game changing start-ups, experiences which have prepared me for fresh challenges.
During Q1 2013 I worked (through Volt) as a contract E-mail Support Representative at GoPro; handling RMA's, writing helpful tips, suggesting knowledge-base articles and providing troubleshooting guidance focusing on our broadcast and production professional customers. I am proficient with several of the Adobe Creative Suite tools including Premier Pro, Camera RAW and Photoshop. You'll also be interested to learn that I authored a 3D computer graphics and animation hardware/software product review column in TV Technology Magazine for several years, my publishing history is here - . Click on the links in this list for a few older writing samples, more recent work is available on request. Read what my references on LinkedIn have said about me!
