Have you watched the first episode of The Newsroom yet? It's available on HBO's YouTube channel. Damn you, Aaron Sorkin and HBO. I don't want to pay more for my cable bill. But I just might have to do it. Damn you!

Funny, daughter just showed me a teaser for this yesterday. She's pretty excited about more good TV and always seems to find ways to watch it.

I might need to try some of these.
 
Here are twenty apps every photographer using Android should have

Over the last five years, there is no doubt that Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices have dominated in the photo industry. Not only did they constantly receive the best applications first, but often times developers would only develop for IOS, leaving Android users out to dry. On top of this, there was a general mindset that if you wanted a smart device as a photographer, Apple was THE way to go. Times however are changing…

This is a list of 20 Android apps that I feel every photographer that uses an Android device should look into. Enjoy!

The video speaks for itself here.
 
Ok, you people are the BEST. Thanks for giving +Christophe Eme such a warm welcome!

I'm in full recruiting-mode this weekend...! Please welcome another of my Body of Proof cast-mates, the hilarious +Geoffrey Arend ! (He promised he'd add an actual profile pic today, don't worry.) ;-) He's also the demented genius behind this spoof musical we did:

There are some great suggestions here for using Storify. My goal is to get better with it and use it more often.

Google, I dislike the "personal results" at the top of an image search. If I was looking for friends' photos, I wouldn't do a Google search.

I don't come around here much. I feel like I should. I sorta want to. I just don't.
