Documentarian / Independent Reporter / Consultant / Computer Scientist
Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.

Bragging rights
Kempton's first feature-length documentary Long Hair Revolution (2005) is preserved in Library and Archives Canada's permanent collection "for the benefit of present and future generations".

A drama filmed over 12 years. Good to see the review mentioned my fav 7Up series. http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/jul/10/boyhood-review-richard-linklater-film
Richard Linklater's beautiful time-lapse study of a boy as he grows up is a thrilling Bildungsroman for modern American cinema, writes Peter Bradshaw

The author may have a point but unfortunately the presented analysis didn't seem to me to do a sufficient job in the objection re: 「天生有權」這句歌詞.

Got a chance to read an analysis on point of law re defamation. http://time.com/2967510/sleeping-yankees-fan-lawsuit/
New York courts are notoriously unfriendly to defamation suits.

+Steve Berry, I hope they do apologize. The guy care enough (a fan) to pay to take time to attend the game in person. And the announcers laughed at him instead?

Light pollution is bad if one lives next to them otherwise they are old and charming. Have to agree with the problem of them not being up to code and can endanger the public if they fall apart and hit someone!

Looking for the ultimate flag for Canada Day? The Peace Tower flag could be all yours. Any Canadian living in the country can order one. But you won’t receive it in time for this year’s July 1st celebrations - or, frankly, anytime soon.

"Facebook manipulated the news feeds of nearly 700,000 users in an experiment to see if the content posted in the feeds would have an effect on the users' future posts." Do you think a research that manipulated users' news feeds to see if their emotion is affect is ethical? Would you consent to be manipulated by Facebook if you were asked?

I like to see news but when I want to sometimes I can not find a story I am looking for; that makes me nuts
