I’m satisfied that great customer service on Virgin America, taking a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway stopping for fish tacos, and a birthday party at a local wine and cheese spot will quickly get rid of any travel doldrums.
I mis-heard the right and heard the left when talking with a close mentor about finance. When you suffer from aphasia this is your life, or maybe it’s a natural metaphor. Perception and context matter.
So a few times over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen cars driving down the streets of San Francisco with 8 digital SLR cameras attached to the roofs, for the longest time I couldn’t figure out why they would be just taking photos of the street.
Well, I’m positing that with the cameras facing out, it’s the work of Google, digitizing the “Street Views” of The City for their Google Maps application.
It’s incredible, I just needed to look up my friend’s zip code and typed in his address, and then I was given the option to check out the street view. This is especially useful if you’re on foot and don’t have GPS, you can actually *visualize* the place you’re headed to.
There is so much potential in the Casio Exilim EX-F1 for those interest in capturing athletic events, nature, and performance. Indeed it is a revolutionary camera, in that it doesn’t tout it’s mega-pixels but is a paradigm shift in camera features with a blazing frame rate.
Here’s a little bit of an interview from her live show at Amoeba Records.
I had a list of things I’d like to get from before I moved to San Francisco (2002), I just found the 3″x5″ card, and here’s what was on it…
1. Technics 1200’s and mixer
amp and speakers (found the speakers on the street, amp was gift, and I bought a Numark tt1650)
Midi Controller / synth (Oxygen2 controller)
Midi interface / sound card (imic works great)
Ink Jet Printer capable of large paper (Tektronix can print 11×17 wax prints)
Max Ram 3x512mb (1.25gb ram in desktop)
Titanium apple computer 677 mhz 40gbhd (12″ Aluminum Powerbook May 2004)
Subaru WRX or 2.5 RS coupe (Zipcar member since 2004)
Snowboard (got snowskate in 2003)
Digital Camera (Rebel XT Summer 2006)
Action Sampler + panoramic camera (gift from Fiid and Susan 2005)
I have succeeded in every one of these categories except I have no need for a car anymore because of my bike and car sharing…
