Ignore at your own peril. This was uploaded in 2007 to Youtube. My how we have come to truth.

Anti-virus compay Norton has released a fascinating new documentary on the world of bulletproof hosting—providing server space to clients with little or no oversight on the content—and the hazards the practice can present to people online. Very fascinating look into this part of the Internet.
I lived in San Diego for almost 9 years. It's an amazing place, and this drone video captures it perfectly. Very well done.
If you don't know his name, you definitely know his products. Gabe Leydon is the owner and leader of Machine Zone, most known for Game of War. With over 100 million dollars in ad spend over a two year period, Gabe is one of, if not the largest buyer of digital and broadcast media in the world right now. This very impressive interview blows the roof off of the media buying space right in front of a room full of media sellers and buyers. Fantastic.
Very cool drone video from Ian Wood on Vimeo.
This is a pretty amazing piece of photography previously not seen. As someone who grew up with technology, and lived in the Silicon Valley for several years in the early nineties, this really brings back some memories for me.
These photographs are from Doug Menuez’s new book Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley 1985-2000, from Atria Books, an eyewitness record of the brilliant engineers, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who built our world.

I think my favorite photo of the the whole lot is the photo of Steve Bulmer colorfully discussing some issue at hand with programmers in the hallway of Microsoft's campus.
Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s senior vice president of systems software (right), engages with a group of programmers at company headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

So, when you work in tech, and think about numbers, revenues, conversions, ePCS, CPMs, ROIs, traffic in, traffic out, eventually you have to be able to put it down and go think about something that makes you relax and disconnect for awhile each day. Recently I got back to photography. It's always been a pet project/hobby for me.
We went to Europe for 25 days last month for our wedding/honeymoon, so I got to put some of my newly revisited skills to work for a few weeks.
Here are a couple of the photos that I snapped and retouched.
More to come as I get to them.
