  • Censorship sucks: Verizon blocks wireless access to 4chan? http://www.geekologie.com/2010.....on_pre.php #

  • Switching to Zoom H4n instead of Edirol R-09 to take advantage of phantom-powered XLR inputs. Need to start doing interviews on the road. #
  • USPS change of address online broken. Requires credit card with old address as billing address? Can't zone property as live AND work? #fail #
  • Tea with Jesse Lichtenstein, who is here interviewing notable social media and infrastructure companies. #
  • @gfmorris I can't travel with that, unfortunately. My lav mics take batteries as well, so I should be able to bypass phantom when using them in reply to gfmorris #
  • Aperture 3 announced! Face recognition, GPS, brushes, presets, slideshows. Hope it has "do not corrupt library" feature http://bit.ly/bxobrZ #
  • One important thing glossed over by Aperture 3 announcements: video and audio support. This is huge for asset management. #
  • Does anyone know whether Aperture 3 supports XMP sync? (Not just import) #
  • Great post, Sterling! RT @sterlingz My first impressions of ... Apple Aperture are up over at Wetpixel: http://zum.bz/cuiVVZ #
  • Sperm whale story in Russian http://timeszp.com/current/128.....rtazh.html #
  • @tonywu Be sure you don't get any new cameras -- else you won't be able to use Aperture for another 6-9 months! in reply to tonywu #
  • After having to transcode to 1080p H.264 for video field deliveries, I may get an Elgato Turbo.264 HD. #
  • @tonywu Tony - the Elgato Turbo is made for you. Drag and drop + export with presets. Done! :) in reply to tonywu #
  • @andybiggs QT export is in many apps -- certainly, in all the apps I use to export video. in reply to andybiggs #
  • I can't believe I'm paying to renew AA Gold status, but I think it will pay for itself with free checked luggage + early boarding for gear. #
  • For sale: Motorola Droid in excellent condition with multimedia dock, screen protector. $425 + shipping. #
  • @chriskac Blackberry Tour. in reply to chriskac #
  • @sterlingz I'm going be on Blackberry only until more options appear. Will probably go iPod Touch, in the meantime. in reply to sterlingz #
  • @sterlingz @andybiggs The reason I'm going Elgato is that I've been delivering 1080p H264 @ 12Mbps. Even transcoding on new MBP takes ages. in reply to sterlingz #
  • NGOs: please spell my name right when you ask me for free images. #

  • @uwfotog Google Buzz was auto activated for me, sharing my Reader feed and a list of people it automatically followed. Not nice. in reply to uwfotog #
