So it seems that this idea goes back to the likes of Carnegie (Yes, the guy that built all those libraries) and Roosevelt (Teddy, not Frankin). Whilist these two certainly have a few neurons twitching between their ears the idea of altering the spelling of the English language because ‘it’s too hard to learn’ is clearly targeted at those who smoked way too much weed.
What’s next? Changing our systems of weights and measures so that they are based on a simple base 10 system? Wait… Oh… right.
BTW, get a load of the the woman’s name in the caption in the upper left. Seems like she should start her crusade a bit closer to home.
I love my phone. Ok, so love may be a bit strong but I really, really like my phone. One of the many trÃ©cool features is a 0.3M pixel camera. Yes, I know, the 0.3M pixel is pretty pathetic in today’s world of 5-10M pixel cameras but there is no beating this little gem for portability and spontaneity.
I’ve combined this with the mondo-popular Flickr photo sharing service and the new Shozu camphone publishing service. Shozu provides a downloadable application for my (and other) phones that will automatically post my camphone shots to Flickr. It does require an Internet data plan for your phone and since you will love this service to death, an unlimited data plan is recommended. 😉
In addition to uploading pics directly from your phone, it will also download any comments posted on your Flickr pics back to your phone and display them in the album. Sweet.
This is a long introduction to a new feature of my blog, a view of my Flickr photostream on the left sidebar. You can click on any of the images to be transported to my Flickr site and an enlarged version of the pic. The sidebar will display the 3 most recent camphone shots I’ve uploaded with the most recent at the top.
Ain’t technology grand?
With the ‘global struggle against extremism’ still in full swing, our country trillions in debt, the assalt against privacy and a presidency in ruin Congress sees fit to spend it’s time on… wait for it… movie ratings.
It’s no wonder to me that the British consider us ‘no longer a symbol of hope’.
I weep for the future. Hell, I weep for the present!
Oh well, so much for the public getting any relief from the monopolistic greedlust of the CableCos. “It’s ComCastic!”… my plump hairy rump.
This geek stuff gets me all aflutter. After groking this two-parter it seems to me that the GooFS would be a fab candidate for large media libraries.
