I have decided once again to use flickr as my primary foto sharing site. From time to time, I’ll upload images on this blog as well, but ultimately I’m going to develop my own website devoted to my photography. For now enjoy:
Barcelona, May 2010.
I’ll be in Barcelona, Spain, for 10 weeks this summer. I’ll be co-instructing 2 classes, computational photography and ethics, with Professor Irfan Essa. I’m currently developing a photo blog to share/post images. The following map will be updated frequently with places I visited and that sort of thing. Exciting times ahead.

The good folks of Google’s Reader product recently released an experimental feature called Play. Play has a few nice features and the experience of using it is very different from any other app offered by Google. This feature seems like an application that was designed for the so-called Google tablet. Building on the tablet idea, one can easily add gesture/touch handlers, which would enhance the experience of using this feature.
There are some design designs that need to be revisited though. For instance, all of the text that appears below the content well is centered, which just doesn’t fee right. Also, the number of words on a singe line spans the entire page, which is not very usable. While I’m fine with the dark colors, it’s a little jarring because I normally associate Google with a very bright and colorful ascetic. Wonder what led to a departure from the consistent look and feel we’re used to. Anyway, give it a try.
