Digital Photography Review
Before heading to Alaska this summer, I decided to study-up on cameras and buy one that *might* make me proud of the pictures I would be taking in this majestic state. Figuring that Alaska might contain some photogenic scenery and wildlife, I headed to a phenomenal web site called Digital Photography Review to do research before buying one.
The proprietor of this web site is a guy named Phil Askey. He comes across as SIGNIFICANTLY more analytical than just about anyone I’ve ever met. His methodology for analyzing cameras and testing them exhaustively ensures that the reader of his reviews gets a solid and objective analysis.
If you’re in the market for a digital camera, stop by DPReview. Spend some time on the forums and get a sense what people think of the particular camera(s) you’re considering. I did…and after 40 or so hours poking around, I ended up with a Nikon D70 digital SLR, kit lens plus a zoom lens, external flash and I’m incredibly pleased.
My pictures? I guess the old saying that, “It’s not the tools but the carpenter” holds true in my case. Great camera…pictures that are just OK. I’ll keep working on it though.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
