It installed just fine on an s3 that was running 10.1, but It installed 10.0.0.d2att, while I was hoping that it would take care of the upgrade to 10.2 or 11.  Is it the fact that the installer can't do the flashing needed, and I still need to do heimdall or other to get that level of the upgrade to work?

Hi folks.  I'm David, from Vancouver BC; I work for Mozilla on our Labs initiatives, and touch on our Webmaker initiative as well. Looking forward to the discussion.

I have a hunch, and a hypothesis, that I'd like to test with this audience.

The hunch is this: we're all here because we aspire to become better photographers, and we want critique and helpful commentary, but with close to 25,000 members, posting a photo up for C&C in Light Box is quite a bold step, and at least I don't feel quite "ready".  The internet can be a brutal place, after all, and we don't all have thick skins.

So the hypothesis is this: if there was a way for you to be teamed up with a small set of photographers whose opinion you respected (but who weren't intimidating pros), would you be more willing to share your photos?  In particular, I wonder if being in a smaller group which stayed together for a few photos would not lead people to critique more, and be more willing to be critiqued (because the space would feel smaller, safer).

Feel free to comment, or even just +1 to in case you think I'm roughly right.

(I'm toying with the idea of building a web app to explore this concept)

Question: what is the schedule (day, time, timezone) for the live seminars?  (an iCal feed would be awesome).

Hi folks.  As a form of introduction, I figured I'd share my latest playful exploration with bubbles and longer exposures with 50Hz lighting sources.

Having a silly amount of fun with the low-light performance.  This is a very dark tree barely lit up by a streetlight across the street, way past sunset.  Not a particularly interesting shot, but the camera is making me look at the night differently.

A new blog post on a possible future, if we think about products by assuming a decentralized architecture: http://blog.ascher.ca/2013/03/07/decentralization/

I'm convinced we are seeing a pretty big revolution. We getting close to anybody being able to make anything. Every day I see new, interesting, crazy stuff evolving:

I've been poking around firebase & meteor, and sparkleshare+github and dropbox+site44. I'm a bit disturbed (in a good way) by what feels to me like a sea change that's happening there,...

Hi everyone.  I lead Mozilla Labs and have a finger or two in Mozilla Webmaker, so this course is intriguing to say the least.

And while I'm at it, another night shot. Main point of this one again is a comment that there's more to see at night than I thought.  Broken left arm makes it hard to hold the camera steady, but as long as I don't look too closely, sharpness is Good Enough.

Wondering about the economics of convincing a bunch of amateur photographers in the office to pool resources and get a quality photo printer, in the hopes that we could combine the ease of on-premises printing, high quality output, low capital investment and shared knowledge (without dealing w/ e.g. drying ink cartridges).  +Roland Tanglao suggests that +Tim Bray might have some useful insights in this burning topic.

London Drugs is good but NOT great! much more fun and time consuming to do it at home like Tim suggests for more "prosumer" results
