I could rarely bring myself to lug around my Canon full frame camera and lens. So I recently sold all my full frame gear and used the money to buy a Panasonic GX7 micro-4/3 camera and a few lenses. The picture below shows the difference in size between my old system and my new system. The difference in weight is commensurate. What a relief.
This site is mostly a personal journal. Although you couldn’t reach this site until now, for the last few weeks when I posted to Facebook, I might also have posted here. From the next non-trivial post on, I’ll post here first, and let a WordPress plugin automatically post to Facebook and Twitter. I hope that works – we’ll see.
I’ve gone back and done some retro posting here from my Facebook entries. And there are a few very old posts predating Facebook which were brought over from my old blog. It’s a work in progress – there are still some improvements and more retro posts to be done. Please bear with me while I get the kinks worked out.
One of the motivations for this is so Facebook won’t have an exclusive grip on what is essentially a personal diary and photos. Who knows how long Facebook will be around, and what would replace it.
This was a very enjoyable a demo of a working Babbage Difference Engine at the Computer History Museum at Mountain View.
