Captain AJAX Presents at Vancouver Film School Comments Off

Andre Charland - Captain AJAXLast night I went to VFS and listened to Andre Charland from eBusiness Applications give an overview on AJAX and the whole web two dot oh movement. It was a good talk and the most in-depth coverage of AJAX I’ve heard. He spent less time talking about the technology and more time talking about the business cases for using good interaction design principles and components when developing web-based software. Andre’s got a customer list of Fortune 500 companies an arm long and it’s not suprising with some of the ROI metrics he’s able to demonstrate. In addition to an awesome introduction to AJAX Andre also offered all the students in crowd a free liscence of their Grid Control and Web ComboBox products which is worth $400 bucks or so. Way to represent ‘Dre. :)

Breaking The Curse Comments Off

Tomorrow I’m finally going to break the curse and leave North America. I’m 28 years old have traveled lots and lots around the States and Canada but have never left the continent. So after much ado and a couple planned trips that ended up failing through for one reason or another I’m finally off to see a lil bit more of the world.

YVR >> LHR >> LGW >> EDI >> LHR >> YVR

I’m going to be flying from Vancouver to London on British Airways. I’m going to hang in London for a few days and explore and take pictures and meetup some old friends like Andy and Suw and some new friends like Sarah and Max. Then I’m headed up to Edinburgh for a weekend, then back to London, and then home to YVR. What should I do while I’m there? What should I see? What is your fav resturant/pub/museum/gallery/club that I just can’t miss?

I’ll be gone for 9 days. I’m sure I won’t have access to my cell phone at all so email will be the best way to get a hold of me (or Flickr). I’ll be working some and playing some so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need me.

Other Places on the Web I Hang Out Comments Off

There are several social software sites I’ve been tinkering with over the past year or so. Here’s a link to my profiles on the ones that are the most intersting. Flickr by far is my favorite and is the only one where I actually spend a lot of time. Last.fm is pretty amazing and doesn’t really require any time investment. LinkedIn is the most ‘professional’ of the bunch and MySpace seems to be the most ‘popular’. What are your favorites? What other sites are awesome?

Why Self Portraiture? Comments Off

Every photograph we make is part of a learning process. We turn our lens on our respective worlds, on the people who inhabit it, on the new places we discover, and on the scenes we’ve created. We find truth and we create fiction with our cameras. It seems a natural thing to turn the camera around and examine ourselves, or even to recreate ourselves.

Sam Sullivan Photo Used for the Cover of the Terminal City News Comments Off

My friend Ian King called me up this week and asked if I could drop everything and come take a photo of someone he was interviewing for the Terminal City News. Turns out the interview was with Sam Sullivan who is running for mayor in Vancouver. I took my Canon 20d but forgot my memory card so I decided to shoot expired slide film instead and to cross-process it. It actually made me happy that I forgot the flash card so that I had a good excuse to go analog and shoot something that I feel like is a little more distinctively my style right now. A couple of the shots turned out and it Ian ended up using this one for the cover. I think it would be fun to do more quick lil projects like this.
