Google Reader got an update today which makes it more of a usable RSS feed interface. They’ve still got some work, but I use it for all of my science news feeds and I think it is fast and a lot of the features you might find in a client-side (and for pay) piece of… Continue reading Google Reader Update
Anousheh Ansari is blogging, which might not be that big of a deal, except for she’s doing it from the International Space Station (and it’s a WordPress blog, no less). She also has a Flickr photostream as well as a del.icio.us linkblog. Anyway, her blog over at the X Prize Foundation is a good read… Continue reading Anousheh Ansari Space Blog
Upon returning to Richmond after the VA Beach Half-marathon, we were pretty much in the mood to take it easy. We spent most of the time here around the house, all being pretty tired. Monday morning was labor day, and Jason J. treated the house to a big stack of waffles. Now, I hear that… Continue reading Surprise Birthday Party
UVA Stadium Pergola 1 by Jason Coleman — I was at the University of Virginia yesterday for a work meeting, and thought I’d walk around for a few minutes afterwards to take a few photos. I’ve had far worse days at work than spending the last day of summer walking around a college campus on… Continue reading UVA Stadium Pergola
Last year, I ran a local half-marathon event which was relatively small (300+ runners). Angela, having work conflicts, didn’t run any formal event, but did run 13.1 miles with me on what was dubbed the First Annual Angela Dyer Birthday Half-Marathon, which actually took place last Labor Day (e.g. – not her birthday). This year,… Continue reading VA Beach Rock n Roll Half Marathon
When I mentioned that I had gotten a Nikon D50 for my birthday, Trey stated it was the most popular camera on Flickr. Well, it turns out that he was close; it’s the second most popular (I had assumed it’d be way behind pocket cameras and I was wrong). The most popular camera on Flickr?… Continue reading Flickr’s Most Wanted (or Used, Anyway)
Railroad Trestle Connection by Jason Coleman — Other than the fact that this is a very cool looking, old riveted steel connection, I was attempting to use some color & lighting effects in post-processing to make this photo interesting.
Angela wanted me to get something nice for my birthday and after having hung out with Kevin O’Mara a couple of weekend’s previous, in addition to looking at his photographs over the past few months, she decided a digital SLR camera would make a great gift. She would leave it up to me to pick… Continue reading So Now He Thinks He’s A Photographer
Hanging Walkway by Jason Coleman — Angela and Stacie walk along the Lee Pedestrian bridge out to Belle Isle while admiring the view down the James River.
Nearly two weeks ago now, I celebrated my thirtieth birthday. However, you can save your old jokes for someone else. I just don’t feel old. In fact, I feel like I’ve finally reached the point I’ve been working towards all my life up until this point. It’s actually a great feeling. Of course, a big… Continue reading Thrity Something, Something Wordy
