Fun things found on the internet

I found a really fun web site today. It's a site that lets you type a word into a text box and then it finds pictures off of the photo sharing site Flickr that shows each letter and makes up the whole word. It's quite amusing and very fun to play with. It even generates ...

25 years of automotive television … and editing.

I'm a big sports car fanatic and there is a great automotive news magazine called Motorweek that has been airing on PBS for years. The show has a mix of automotive reviews and performance tests, tech tips and feature stories. It's produced in a very formal, laid-back kind of style. It's not overly flashy, the ...

The age old question again…

Mac vs. PC!!! There is a forum thread over at Studio Daily that again poses this question. It is always an interesting debate and a fun read so I invite the world to participate. It particularly interesting to debate this topic in regards to edit software packages.. But that is where the Avid vs. Final Cut ...

All press is good press!

A local free newspaper has a column called "Love My Job." I was interviewed for this very column and it's on the net. But better than that is that this issue is the sex issue... so if you are in Nashville pick up a copy and skip over my little interview and get to the ...
