A bit late for Valentine’s Day but, acrylic paint roses.
You think I post lots of links: Hah! see Doc Searls’ Bag o’ Tags
Kirk McElhearn, Kirkville, End of Solitude in internet age…
Walden is, of course, in the public domain and available as ebook with a few clicks of the intermouse.
and interestingly enough, Bruce Schneier looks at the web as a bot for both good and otherwise
Really good thoughtful pieces for your Saturday.
In NYC, they’re cutting back tourist heli flights, even though the complaints to NYC are miniscule.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, they’re starting tourism ops over objections in Goa, India.
Thoughts on being a foreigner by Kirkville. Some of the notes resonate. Interesting read if you have a couple of minutes.
The famous ‘Migrant Mother’ image by Dorothea Lange was made in Nipomo, just miles from where I’m working now. Golly! And now they are… proposing a park on the theme. Hm. Also:
Stuff from the interwebs:
does not = lackadaisical. Just too darn busy and haven’t found a better mechanism for getting photos into posts in WP.
It’s now a multi-step process (ie vs. export option from Aperture; and Aperture is dead so I have to find a new photo manager) and no good ‘subscription’ method I’ve found yet so fans can get auto-updated when I post. I know and use RSS but most friends and family don’t.
So stay tuned please.
An interesting read of maybe five minutes of your time, on eff.org by John Perry Barlow from February 1996, while you’re waiting for me to steal some more time to post photos!
Gads, first post of 2014 and it’s April.
From The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST):
When someone refers to “midnight tonight” or “midnight last night” the reference of time is obvious. However, if a date/time is referred to as “at midnight on Friday, October 20th” the intention could be either midnight the beginning of the day or midnight at the end of the day.
To avoid ambiguity, specification of an event as occurring on a particular day at 11:59 p.m. or 12:01 a.m. is a good idea, especially legal documents such as contracts and insurance policies. Another option would be to use 24-hour clock, using the designation of 0000 to refer to midnight at the beginning of a given day (or date) and 2400 to designate the end of a given day (or date).
If you’re seeing this, then I didn’t allocate my time right enough to post more pix. Stay tuned, mind your RSS feeds, email etc to know more about the continuations. Dave, proprietor.
NYT Story on Hong Kong Trams (reference my HK photo posts earlier this year)

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
Say… if there are no photos today, it’s probably that I got busy and didn’t have anything new ready to post.
Take no offense, I’ll be back when able.
[Update 2/12… scheduled some pix starting 2/15, need to take some more!]
He is the designer of the theme I’m using for this blog. I wrote him about how to reduce the height of the header and he came back with pinpoint instructions so now every viewer saves some scrolling effort. Hurrah!
