For those GoPro users. I don't know about you but I've been looking for a cool easy to pack little case for a few GP's and when on productions. I just found it.  It's on JumpStartCity (crowdfunding site) and it's really cool, compact, weighs next to nothing (way it should be) and holds all the extras we need to use.

Go back this little venture and help make another photographer rich. ;-)

I would agree with MC, I remember when I was pitching to the City of Folsom a concept in the early days of the Internet the concept of a virtual city, where they'd make over $300,000 a month on the concept. Their response then was "the Internet's a fad, it's not going to be used seriously in business" I run into that city manager at times and I keep saying to him "how's that fad going for ya now?" He just shakes his head and say "yes, Jeff you were right". :-)

Thanks +Robert Scoble for posting this Tactus technology! Love it! 
New keyboard "pops" off of glass screen

If the next iPhone has this I might just give up my Android (which has a much better keyboard than an iPhone has).

Tactus shows me how its new keyboard works (it pops off the glass). Really awesome engineering and I dig into it here (it won all sorts of awards at CES earlier this year). Learn more about this technology here: http://www.tactustechnology.com/

The shot on the left is mine... I seen the Hydropot™ at work. It's amazing. As the owner/inventor said, he knew it would use less water, but didn't think 60% less. (he was thinking maybe 40%)
Here's out famous star, the Japanese Maple, put in the Hydropot™ Sept. 9, 2012; for the photoshoot at the poolside yard. And here it is today (May 3, 2013). It's grown a little over 1.5 feet. (we've been trimming it to train it)

Oh, here's the real news! In 236 days in the Hydropot™ it drank only 10 gallons of water. We calculated that if a person had this Japanese Maple in a pot, using a the common drip line (1 gal. per minute) and watered for 15 minutes daily, they would have used over 60 gallons of water.

This shows that not only does the Hydropot™ grow faster, with less water (we knew this), it would have been 60% less water!

The water was never changed, we just added water (from the top) to the pot. It also only use 1.5 ounces of nutrients during the 236 days. 

Spread the word on how efficient the Hydropot™ is and support the Kickstarter: http://kck.st/153vidr

This is the coolest growing system. It's revived a ficus everyone told me I killed. It's growing like crazy now and I have to replant into a new pot. If I keep it in the Hydropot it would be growing off the ceiling.

If anyone grows their own veggies or anything I highly recommend the Hydropot™ I know the owner and he's got big vision for solving global starvation. Though Hydropot needs help to get Kickstarter backed.

Help G+ friends get the Hydropot and his Kickstarter to goal.

How the Hydropot™ works in brief. The only self-contained growing system that's portable, low-energy, reuses water & nutrients while re-oxygenating the water.

The easiest growing system in the world.

Hey friends... I'm trying to spread the word (hope go viral) of Hydropot™ the most amazing growing machine... it revived a ficus tree (I almost killed while mom was in the hospital for 4 months). In 3 days in the Hydropot™ it was back to green, and new leaves growing. It's grown so much in less than a month I've gotta take and put it back into a regular pot. Then I'll think I'll start an avocado tree in it.

Hydropot's looking for 15,000 $5.00 backers. Come on G+ friends lets solve global starvation and back Hydropot™

Hey gang one of my client's is launch a Kickstarter campaign for his invention/product. The Hydropot™ is super cool. It re-oxygenates the water while feeding the plant's roots. I resurrected a ficus tree my mother had (I had killed while I was taking care of mom; 3 months in the hospital.... unfortunately... or I thought, everyone told me, it had died)

After 4 days in the Hydropot it's back to normal and no more leaves falling off. The thing's grown a foot in 3 weeks... I need to put it back in a regular pot or it will get too big. 

Help me spread the word and share the Kickstarter. He's just launch and has about 20 days to go.

The owner's real vision is to help solve global starvation, he's got plans on a multiple pot system (in design) that will run off solar panel and store the air in holding tanks, his research is showing that the Hydropot™ system would grow wheat, corn, and more... heck he grew a broccoli plant from see in 8 weeks in it. I was blown away, my broccoli in the ground (bought plant at the nursery) only grew 4" his from seed was 3 feet tall in 8 weeks. It's like supercharging the growth. It's crazy!

Very cool audio recorder by Tascam for those doing DSLR video. Being one that uses the Tascam DR40, which has most all the features of this rig, just that I can't mount it under the camera. I'm liking this system a lot!  I've used it on many commercials, two short films and with one feature film I was DP for. Anyone want to buy a DR40?

Sorry to all of those that I've dropped off the face of the world...Life's been a bit crazy. As many of you know I was taking care of my mother and her battle with cancer. The Holiday's were quite hard for mom had a series of
seizures back Oct. 11, which landed her in the hospital till Oct. 31. Then from there she was in a medical care center while dealing with some infections that was the cause. They had to do surgery on her brain for a sinus infection had caused the seizures.

After many months of battling she said to me New Year's Eve, 2pm, that she was tired of this and didn't want the pain any more. So I had to make the hard call and had them start giving Morphine. If any of you know, once you go that route it's just a matter of days. Well she passed away Jan. 2, 2013.

Just had a memorial celebration for her last Sat. with all of her friends (and many of mine that knew mom). it was a nice time and I'm now trying to get back into the rest of life and things.

CAworkshops I had to take a break from for a while. Some of you were there at the Hangout in Oct. that +Margie Decker helped out on, I was able to attend while at the hospital.

This photo of mom was back in 1990, when I had just returned from a week long travel to New York showing my portfolio to magazines: TIme, NewsWeek, Life, SI, etc... I had got a couple of assignments from that travel, she had just picked me up at the airport, tells me there's this summer/pool party at some friends of hers and that she brought a suit for me...Not knowing anyone at the party I did what I normally do, grab my cameras. This was shot with: Canon F1, 200mm 2.8, on Kodachrome 64 (film). I'd have guess the exposure was something like: 250th F4 most likely from the lighting situation.

RIP mom: 6.16.1941 - 1.2.2013
