Geek-Out!

Google Chrome, my 2nd browser of choice now has extensions, allowing me to trick out the browser to do so much more. Will it replace Safari? I doubt it? Safari's colour management, ie Apple's colorsync are a given, and as I spend so much time looking at Photographs online, I need to feel comfortable regarding the colour.

Note Taking Tools

Life hacker has a neat e-mail article today, looking at note taking tools. Citing ubiquitous mobile phone usage as its reason. Well I am a HUGE fan of Evernote™, mainly because it allows me 3 points of access and organisation for all my notes, my desktop, my mobile device, any web access point.

It seems that many share my enthusiasm for the tool as it was the clear leader overall, as suggested by those who participated, in the poll. I also like the simple builtin free tool that comes with my iPod, but Evernote™ is a more powerful tool, I even pay for the service even though, I doubt I will come close in reaching anything beyond the capacity fo free accounts.

Give it a whirl it's an awesome tool.

Fisrt Edit Sydney 2010 [Biennale]
Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!

I quickly visited Sydney on Friday and Saturday, an exhaustive and exhausting 2 days of art food and walking! I didn't shoot as much as I would have liked, but, here is the first edit, from my time up there.

More on the Biennale itself later.

Here's a small slideshow, roughly cut together using sampled sounds from freesound.org. Credits to the following for sharing their samples/sounds and allowing them to be re-sampled, DJ Chronos, gleeman,j uskiddink.

Hidden?

My flickr views have taken a bit of a beating over the last couple of weeks, in that they have dropped to an all time low. I just discovered today, that the flickr staff have hidden my account from public searches. Why I don't know, and the only reason I found out was I was looking for my exif data in the new interface, when I discovered the setting.

Views & Stats on flickr

Recently I discovered, quite by accident, that I had my flickr stream removed from public searches. This is affectionately know as being NIPS'd. My view count on my flckr stream had dropped quite dramitically over the last month and I was perplexed as to why. To the point where I was questioning my continuation of my flickr account. Now that I have resolved the issue regarding the public searches, my views have returned to the state they had been at for most of the time I've ben on flickr, since the stats were introduced. This is a worry as this means, that, the majority of my views come from these searches. Should I care? Should I use this as an excuse to re-focus my energies elsewhere? We'll see.
