Best Seat in the House | The Seattle Times - I love Rod Mar's blog about shooting Seattle Seahawks football games. Interesting: lead photo printed with its crooked horizon. I also like to see when he uses his Canon 1D Mark IIN and when his 1D Mark III. He uses both, but with different lenses.
Lies, Lies and Adobe Spies - Some carping about peculiarly masked IP address, actually owned by Omniture, that CS3 apps contact. See Adobe response here: http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2007/12/whats_with_adob.html
40-page PDF on Nikon D3 - It's a chunky download, but if you want to see the glossy brochure without the actual paper part...
Canon 40D Guide - A good basic review of the Canon EOS 40D for those who want a nice primer to digital SLRs and aren't familiar with all the jargon. Upshot: a good camera. (Though you'd have to be a pretty wealthy beginner to buy a $1,500 SLR, in my opinion.)
retrobrowsers are go - A site with various ancient browsers. See how well today's Web sites render. Hello Netscape 0.9 from October 1994, Mosaic 0.6 from 1994, IE 1.0. I never tried Cello or SlipKnot of WinWeb. Too bad no HotJava. I never even heard of LineMode.
Great neologisms from the New York Times - I knew some of these, but this is a great survey of new terms from well beyond my little tech niche. "Left of boom," "gorno," "maternal profiling," "walkshed."
Creative use of flash--car portrait - This was a Strobist five-best-of-2007 winner. I love it because it's low-tech--the guy left his camera aperture open and walked around his
car with three flashes taped to a rod, firing the flashes at more-or-less regular intervals.
