E-Ink Keyboard: OMG!

If this works as advertised, and on PC....WANT!!
An adaptive but undisruptive keyboard that uses E-Ink to show you what shortcuts are what keys. Very cool.

Pass the eye bleach

Oh my word. Taking chances, or taking drugs, just what the hell were designers thinking in the 70's?

The three guys in their underwear is, um, well, um....are those sweat stains, or body hair on the guy in the middle?
Men's fashion is the gift that keeps on giving. Until armour becomes ubiquitous, men will continue to struggle...

Henna Canvas

At this year's Gathering on the Green, my dear +Danielle V gave her back over to the tender ministrations of +One Crafty Bitch, who created this gorgeous piece of art.

Definitely one of the talking pieces of the day.

I looked it up a while back, 'cause I'd like to go back to Victoria at some point.  It wasn't promising :/


Unless things have changed, the gist:  I can apply to your Secretary of State for some sort of visitor's exemption, showing I've made full restitution and have had a clean record since.  If he says no, all bets off.  If he says yes, the border agent can still deny passage if he doesn't like the look of me :P

Jaymes In Princeton

Some people, likely his haters, have said that +Jaymes Blake would never make it to Princeton. Well, yesterday he proved them wrong.

And here's the pic to prove it.

Well done, Jaymes!

Mr. Magoo No More?

Definitely keeping a tabs on this one.

One of the things technology will most likely fix at some point down the road is poor eyesight. And it might happen sooner than we think, if Ocumetics Technology is successful with its Bionic Lens ...

Jason Joseph Found, Needs A Hand

Glad to hear that +Jason Joseph is mostly ok. But, he needs a hand. Can you spare a bit?
 
Hardest Post Ive Ever Had to Write....

While the past year brought Six Beats so much closer to being able to produce content for everyone....
(We have a 2nd meeting with a major streaming music service on Monday...and have a major music instrument retailer on board. We even managed to get YouTube to invite us to their studios to house the project. The people who do the books for KISS and Dave Matthews band are setting up the books for Six Beats. We've also begun to align a board of directors after much work trying to find top individuals to ensure Six Beats becomes the gem its meant to. Heck the fund  below was set up by one of my board of advisors....who.. on her companies board of directors sits both Steven Tyler and Rodger Daltery. She is even trying to get Six Beats officially connected to The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. So you see amazing things are happening.)
All that glitters is not gold though.....I've personally hit some very rough times due to health and life-changes. Which have led me to living out of a very unsafe motel with not so much as even a refrigerator.
Im on the track of some work, but Ive much to overcome to ensure I don't sink.
Six Beats and myself are in desperate need of help.
If you can do anything to help.. please do ...sharing helps.
Been a long road and I'm not ready to give up now.
I came crushingly close to the end.. not wanting to reach out to anyone for help. Im a giver...I want to be in a position to connect inspire share and create change. So to ask for help.. especially from strangers.. especially when I said from the get go that the idea is powerful enough that I should never have to publicly fund it as its valuable enough for companies to create and sustain it. Which I still believe to be true...it just takes a little time.
Im humbled in asking you all for help. And Im only marginally comfortable in doing so because I know what I stand to offer in return for the chance to succeed. Otherwise.. truthfully...if there was no Six Beats.. Id probably have just given up all-together.

Hi world Jason Joseph is the founder of Six Beats of Separation, a project bringing awareness for a global cause. Jason needs your help now! Please Donate what you can to help his dream become a reality so he can continue to do what his dream and life path wants him to do.. Help Others!

Thank you for this. Im getting closer to possibly having some work that will keep me afloat. Still will be in this motel till I launch the project but Im mroe hopeful than fearful.

Still not outta the woods but man does it feel jsut amazing to cry because you know people care rather then because everythign you do turns up not working.

XOXO thank you for being here.

Gotta sit down at my computer and get all 341 photos together for a better look at things.

The Household Rating System

So, my dear +Danielle V has discovered sense8. She watched a few episodes with +Illyana V, and now wants the re-watch them with me, so I can learn the apparent awesomeness of the show.

As we were about to start, Danielle remembered that there may be a part or two that might be too mature for Illyana to see.

Danielle: "You might want to focus on something else for a bit. There's a part in here that's a bit mature for you."

Illyana: "On a scale of One to Game Of Thrones, how mature?"

Kids And Their Cell Phones

On the way out to Brantford yesterday, we passed this cellphone mascot. +Illyana V wanted to stop to get her picture taken with it. Since we were on a timeline, we couldn't.

On the return trip, there he was again, so we stopped, and she got her picture. Gracious kid, even though we interrupted his phone call. Literally.

Special kudos to The Record Works in Woodstock. (Gonna have to cross post to FB so they can see this. Le sigh.)

Good Jeep

So, we had a bit of a fender bender today, as recounted by the lovely +Danielle V here: https://plus.google.com/101980599379850668306/posts/JpAeR5UJRez

I must say that I am now more impressed with our little Jeep Liberty.

While the impact definitely dented the bumper of the other vehicle, the photos here show minimal external damage to our Jeep. Some scuffing, a dunch near the right headlight, and the wheel well flare is a little skewed.

We'll see what the insurance company and our mechanic say. Definitely want to have a good overall look at the vehicle, just to be sure.

Happily, everyone involved seems to be ok, no immediate injuries reported.

+Michael Graddy: very true. It's just a thing, after all. We're just happy that everyone seems to be ok.

The Jeep's in the shop now, for a thorough going over. We'll see how it goes.

Puppy Time

Spent a lovely afternoon with +Sid Wood and +Kevin P, and their Irish Wolfhounds. My dear +Danielle V, our lovely +Illyana V, and +Jessica Sarrasin enjoyed a lovely meal and fine cheeses, not to mention the delightful company.

Introduction
Thanks for checking out my profile. Just a little background about me if you are deciding whether or not to circle me (or uncircle me, as the case may be). Grab a cup of your favourite beverage, this may take a bit. ;)

Firstly, circling me does not guarantee an automatic circling back. I simply can not keep up with the stream as it as. I tend towards quality, not quantity, as it were. If it seems interesting to me, I may follow along. Unless it gets to be too much, then I may have to pare things back. Nothing personal. I will do my best to respond to comments, however.

Although I try to keep things relatively clean, there will be times I post stronger or more explicit material. If there is a chance this may offend you, feel free to not circle me. If you do circle me and don't like what you see, just leave quietly. Nobody likes a scene. Sorry to be blunt, but you do have a choice here on G+, no one is forcing you to receive the posts from someone you chose to circle.

I spent much of my adult life working in the computer industry, first as a systems administrator, then in telephone tech support. In 2011, I burned out and went for a career reset. Don't get me wrong, I still love technology and geek out over gadgets and software, but I just can't handle resolving everyone else's computer issues anymore.

While reviewing my options I realized that one of the things I had been doing since I was a kid was taking pictures, so I decided to pursue photography. Still working on that.

Other interests include audio recording and videography. I haven't done much with those, yet. Although in May 2012 I did begin volunteering at our local Rogers TV Community Television station, where I have been learning camera operation, audio, and aim to get into video editing, too.

After an incomplete Project 52 in 2011 (partly due to burning out my camera, partly due to life), I completed a self-directed Project 52 in 2012. For 2013 I am participating in the #WeeklyPhotoProject2013 curated by +112047518791547423051 , +109674480414473952661 and  +104350419422550122115 (+117783067636860808623). I am also working on a very loose Project 365.

I also have an interest in developing a podcast, but as of March 1, 2013 when this profile is being written, I have not come up with a solid idea. The year is still young, though.

If you've read this far, thank you for your patience. This is the most I've written about myself in, well, ever. Google+ is a great community, and I am thankful to be a part of it.
