I hate popularity contests. I guess it's rooted in childhood insecurities. (I was a lousy ball player and was always nearly the last chosen for a team - unless it was swimming, or for a short while, ping pong.)

However, I'm sticking my neck out for my novel "Jo Joe." On LinkedIn is a contest for likes that if I get the most Likes, my novel will be in the running to have 100 copies purchased and distributed to reviewers (at no cost to me or to Pixel Hall Press).

So, I'd really appreciate it if you would go to http://tinyurl.com/mcl873b click Like on the comment with my profile pic in which I describe "Jo Joe." (Below is a picture of what the comment looks like). Thank you.

Wondrous, How what is arguable the most significant photo of the 20th century was captured on December 24, 1968.  Great video.

"Megapixels have become the ultimate measure of a camera. If your cousin has a phone with more megapixels than your year-old point-and-shoot camera, clearly he must have the better, higher-quality device. Right? 

"Wrong.

"Like calories, megapixels are a measure of quantity, not quality. You need a certain number of megapixels depending on the way to want to share a photo. But just as the number of calories in a meal doesn't say much about how nutritious it is, the number of pixels in a camera doesn't say much about the quality of the image they can capture...."

If you don't know what SafeSearch is, you're lucky. Despite it's name, it's anything but Safe. It's a malware program that infects web browsers like Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, and posing as Google, records everything you do, while directing you to websites that you may have no interest in visiting.

Sally's portable workstation became infected (though she is very careful to keep her virus protection up to date and to avoid downloading strange files). No matter what steps and instructions she followed (she found a lot of advice on the Internet), Sally couldn't get rid of it. We were on the verge of completely reformatting the hard drive. But first, we handed the computer over to our assistant Jake Rae, and he got rid of it!

In this video, Jake explains what he did to finally eradicate SafeSearch from Sally's laptop.

Please join me for an X-Rite Photo Webinar on Thursday at 1 PM eastern standard time on how to produce a magazine-like glossy photo book -- like my "American Hands Journal" -- without spending (or having to charge) an arm-and-a-leg.

"In this webinar Sally will share with us the workflow for creating a gorgeous glossy magazine-like journal for her American Hands project. From choosing the photographs, to preparing them, controlling the color with X-Rite solutions, and preparing the final layout for printing. The journal she produces is proving to be useful as a gift for exhibit venue managers, contributors, grant givers, and for other promotional purposes to help increase the support for her fine art project. In addition, she sells the journal as a very desirable take-away from her exhibits and lectures for only $20. "
