Introduction to Geocaching

Been working on a group project with three guys from my grad school cohort. We have to speak for five to ten minutes on an emerging technology. Being the awesome geeks that we are, we chose geocaching. I decided to interview Cameron about his experiences. Four and a half minutes of video provided a minute and forty-five seconds of good stuff, plus a lead-in and a fade at the end that came out to exactly two minutes:

Every Bloom Has Its Thorns?

So I decided I should hook my Flickr account up with my blog. And I think I can add more to this. I wonder if Picasa has a similar function.

Tonight I decided to pay another visit back to fd's Flickr Toys and make a mosaic from some macros I took this past weekend around my neighborhood. I ended up using some brand-new floral macros and a few I already had.

Would love to hear what people think of it.

(Turns out it would not let me "blog this" from Flickr after all.)

My son can read!

Okay, well, he has been practicing these books with his Dad at night when it's bedtime. But he has learned the words and recognizes them when he sees them. But I also think he has these particular books memorized. He was willing to read for the camera, so we made a little video today. It's about nine and a half minutes.

Haircuts and Five Generations

Tonight, I decided to make a video blog after Cameron had already gone to bed.

On a different note, I saw on the news tonight that a 36-year old man ran a red light and crashed into a minivan, injuring all the people inside and killing the youngest, a six year-old boy named Isaac Young. As it turns out, a 3rd grade teacher at my school is the mother of Isaac's kindergarten teacher. It sickens me enough when I learn of these things on the news. When it happens here in my city, I get a little scared. I remember that things like this do happen all the time to people when no one expects them to.

But then there's this tangential connection to people I know. That just shakes me to my core. My son turned five less than a month ago, and the thought of something like that happening to him makes me a little scared to ever let him out of my sight or out of the house.

Video Blogging, entry 2

Today, Cameron wanted to talk about his future ambitions. But when the camera started rolling, he decided he wanted to talk about teeth instead.
