Optimization een working like a madman on my blog—optimization under the hood. You know: part of the 10 year celebration has been sprucing things up a bit moving forward. Aside from the new look, which is temporary, here’s a list of some of the improvements: MediaTemple Is Now the Temple of Doom At one point […]
The entrance to the north bay is through the “Golden Gate” under the Golden Gate Bridge. The area was once owned by the military but was given to the National Park Service in the 1970′s I think. Today, it’s commonly referred to as the Headlands, over 66,000 acres of gorgeous, undeveloped wilderness. I rather enjoy […]
The hardest part of creating this short video was deciding what to leave out! Unlike any video project I’ve ever posted, this one actually has some video footage in it: from my iPhone (in horrible wind and weather) and 5Dmk2 (in a shaky helicopter).

He’s smart. […]
This guy (John Green) blows my mind. In so many different ways! Once you listen to John in this video, you will want to subscribe to their (John and Hank, his brother) YouTube channel, Vlogbrothers, which has over 1,000,000 subscribers! Brilliant stuff. Their Facebook page is here.
When I was a child, Panama City Beach was a really fun tourist trap. Not much public beach was left in the tourist area. Destin, however, was nothing but public beaches with the rare, tiny house or two in one small area. Miles and miles of unspoiled, public beaches, as far as you could see. […]
I hadn’t heard of this guy: Tom Scott*, but he’s clever. I particularly like these projects… To me he’s asking the same question I ask too often: Are we creating a future in which we really want to live? Welcome to Oversight Welcome to Life * So who is he? From his blog: I […]
This has been making the rounds lately. Since it’s so cute, I’m including it here for those who may have missed it.
