For months, every morning when my daughter was in preschool, I watched her construct an elaborate castle out of blocks, colorful plastic discs, bits of rope, ribbons and feathers, only to have the same little boy gleefully destroy it within seconds of its completion. No matter how many times he did it, his parents never swooped in BEFORE the morning’s live 3-D reenactment of “Invasion of AstroMonster.” This is what they’d say repeatedly: “You kno...

"Beijing's nightmares include a loose nukes problem and a humanitarian disaster."

An interesting perspective - the sanctions against NK are not only representative of political disapproval, but a reality for ordinary people on the peninsula. People whom the regime seems not to care about in any case... so at what cost, the sanctions?

"That is, today we see someone on the street and don't know their relationship to us. Once that becomes instantly digitally available, how do we react towards those who have no current connection to our social graph?"

Great thoughtful piece on the alienation that can come as the flipside of connectedness. It's not just a divide between those who can afford Glass and those who can't, but a gap between those who are connected and those who are 'unknown to the system'.
As a Xoogler, Google shareholder and technology geek I couldn't be more excited about Google Glass. Confirmed to be released this year at a pricepoint under $1500, Glass will attempt to make digital w...

"Unlike driving a truck or teaching, no one needs a permit to become a parent."

And maybe that's the way it should be - but I'm glad to see someone talking about parenting instead of gun control in relation to the violence in the US. (Now I want to try to make the phrase 'birth control' somehow relevant...)

Well played, White House, well played.
 
This isn't the petition response you're looking for....a super response from the White House regarding the petition to build a Death Star:

Photographers who would get uncomfortably close to the ground for a photo, stand up!
 
After a Shower
#Mashiko   #益子   #すれすれ  

I was caught by a shower while walking in the town of Mashiko, Tochigi. Soon the rain stopped falling and the late afternoon sunlight filled the streets. By the way, you have to be very careful of the traffic when you shoot this kind of photos. If you didn't, you would get hit or soaking wet ...

突然の雨。そして雨上がり、遅い午後の日差し。町がきらきらと輝いた瞬間。

ところで、こういう写真を撮るときは、道行く車に十分注意しないといけません。ひかれなかったとしても、車が弾いた水たまりの水でずぶ濡れになることがあります。栃木県益子町にて。

If anyone enjoys this scene even a tenth as much as I do, it'll be worth you thinking my taste is a bit weird.

Some tips if you're actually going to watch it: Cissy is Shaun's grandmother, Mitch's wife and Butchie's mum - but don't worry, they're only mentioned. John, the only other character in the scene, turned up out of the blue one day and has so far only spoken in gibberish or parroted other characters.

Infrequent coarse language, adult themes.

And please, before you criticise the photographer: "Their criticism counters what actual law enforcement officers have told me — that physically intervening would have likely only made the situation worse, endangering me, and further endangering Maggie."

I don't know what I would have done in her position, but she managed to use it to create this incredible sequence of photographs. I don't think that deserves criticism.
 
Incredibly moving photo-essay by Sara Naomi Lewkowicz that sheds light on domestic violence — the kind that's often kept private behind closed doors.

There's two and a half years of work behind this... plus about another year's worth in the last week. But we're finally live and ready to roll!

Wow, that's pretty awesome. The move to html was a really good idea.
