GNOME Summit 2007

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

I’ll be at the Summit this year.

To spice up this blog post a bit, I’ll post a few pictures taken around the Summit (but not directly from the Summit!) from prior years.

Interestingly enough, I don’t think I will be bringing my big camera along this time… just a laptop and my little pocket Lumix.

Recent photography things

Friday, March 9th, 2007

I went shooting a few pictures around the Boston area in the freezing cold.


Then a few days later, in Chinatown for the Chinese New Year and met up with Guy



(View the whole Chinese New Year set)

Shortly afterward, I bought a new hard drive (1/2-tb), so I have been trying to consolodate (and organize) all my photos on one disk, finally. As I can actually browse through my (now almost complete) collection of photos spanning several years back, I can post pictures like these from my most recent trip to Germany (almost a year ago):


…or from the beaches of Florida (from 2003):

…or from a trip to Acadia in Maine (in 2004):

Also, I recently purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2. Basically, nearly everyone calls it an LX2 for short. This little compact camera shoots raw, has a Leica lens, and can fit in a reasonably sized pocket (with a little bulge). I’ll be great for when I cannot lug my armada of camera equipment (like commuting to and from work, simply hanging out with friends, etc.).

The N800

Monday, February 5th, 2007

I was one of the fortunate individuals to get a developer discount code for the Nokia N800.

It’s been a few days since receiving the device, and I have had it with me ever since. The tablet does have a few quirks, but I’ve put it to good use as an ebook reader, a ‘Net radio device, and as little portable Linux geek toy. Of course, having a nice Web browser and IM client in my pocket, ready to go, has also been great.

Just to let you all know how much this thing has been in use, I’ll say this: The entire blog post you’ve been reading (including this right now) was written on my N800.

Thanks, Tuomas and Nokia!
