"I’ll point out once again that this is not an engineering problem Nikon has. The engineering teams keep proving that they have the talent to do things that haven’t been done before. This is a management problem. One that involves clarity of purpose, clear direction, consistency in decision making, transparency, insight to the likely future, insight into customer desires and needs (even unspoken ones), and goals beyond cutting costs and keeping up with the competition." -- thom hogan

they are typical fiefdoms who will do detestable things like sell their guts or run systemd. i equally despise both and I'm stuck with them.

"a word of advice: stop searching. forget vision, forget personal style, forget unique voice; these are not goals, they are byproducts. the most meaningful art you can make is not about a particular look, subject matter or visual effect, but about the way you respond to and interpret the world." -- guy tal

Story
Tagline
programmer, photographer, occasional haiku poet. unix since 1982.
Introduction
I'm a passionate programmer and photographer, functionalist, hard-core atheist, science fiction fan, beta geek and occasional haiku poet. I study iaido [muso jikiden eishin ryu - yondan] with goyo ohmi sensei [kyoshi 7-dan]. I have been an open systems advocate and contributor [eg. sdbm] since 1982.

I sometimes make notes here on photography, software, books, graphic design, some poetry, and other things i really like and dislike. i treat it like a shared notebook with external links. it does not cover my history, details of my family, other skills and interests. [i think of all so-social networking as a theatre of matryoshka dolls. it stops me from assuming too much. what you see is much less than what you may get.]

i have several albums of images here and more gets added when I have the time. i don't try to "freeze" moments with my camera; I let them flow, I let them move and capture me. to paraphrase thomas merton, photography enables me to find myself and lose myself at the same time. I work abstracts, shallow depth of field, motion. I'm a long time nikon user.

I hope you find something of lasting value in my stream. enjoy.
