"Quinn recapped the highlight—er, lowlight—reel of her past half-year. There were all-hours calls to her father's house in which people shouted words like "whore" and hung up; photos of her taken without her knowledge, then sent to her with violent threats attached; leaks of nude photos she'd sent to an ex long ago; online discussions about the best murder weapon to bring to her next public speaking event; countless posts encouraging her to commit suicide."

mind truly boggles.

excellent discussion of the painfully-long-awaited d300 replacement situation.

"after briefly handling and using the Canon 7DII recently, I think that Nikon has more than sensor tech to improve. I’d say that the 7DII body is slightly more like the 1Dx body than the D810 body is like the D4s body in terms of quality of build. Nikon has a really tough target to match if they’re going to get back in the game of a top-end crop sensor body."

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

I 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. it does not cover my history, many 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 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.
