Through Silk

We visited an exhibition of silk embroidery at the Shanghai Yacht Club today. This image of Emily was taken through one of the works (i.e. it’s not a reflection).

Ok, I’m probably not the first to ask this, but do these cars have an “I’m Feeling Lucky” button?

Google has been rethinking self-driving cars from the ground up. Today we unveiled a prototype self-driving car built by Google. Watch the video from the page below to see how it works!

Glasgow School of Art

I’ve already posted about the terrible loss caused by this ongoing fire at Glasgow School of Art. The Guardian has just posted this image and it hurts.

That finial (the bird above the globe), silhouetted in the flames was made by my great grandfather, Robert J. Smith.

It’s terrible to see such an important building destroyed, but, it’s just a building. It’s worse to think of the students whose final year degree show work may have been lost as a result, he deadline was/is today at 5pm.

Lytro have produced this fine video about its new Illum camera.

My impressions. Boy is that a big camera. and, is this the new photography for the web?

There are a lot of these folks on the streets of Shanghai this week. Not sure of their effectiveness, but certainly visible, should any passing dignitary come down off the empty elevated roads.

Truly Twisted Absurdity From +Boing Boing 

+Cory Doctorow clearly doesn’t let the facts get in the way when he has an agenda to promote.

I can’t see anything in this article that is remotely accurate. The fact, as clearly stated last week before this video was taken down, voluntarily, was that the +Chris Hadfield camp had permission, a licence if you will, to post this video for one year. That is, an amicable agreement was reached with Bowie (or his record company) prior to posting the video. That licence expired and the video was taken down as agreed.

Of course, it went viral and it is absurd to think that this video will ever be totally removed from the internet, on that I agree. I also think that Bowie should do the honourable thing and grant Hadfield an open ended licence to repost the video. 

But, it is truly disingenuous to call this a takedown.

Crowdsourced Homework Challenge

Here’s an example of my daughter’s maths homework this weekend.

Take four characters, A, B, C and D, and substitute numerical values for those characters that fit the following equation:

AAB - CD = BDC

According to the question, there are three correct sets of numbers. 

Go on, I challenge you.

Oh, and by the way, this is 2nd Grade maths, my daughter is 8.

Cat’s Cradle

A long time ago, when I was a kid, I can remember my big sister coming home from school and demonstrating these really cool. things that she and her friend could do with a simple loop of string.

Now, 45 years later (or thereabouts) I am more amazed that my own 8 year old daughter should be coming home from school and demonstrating these same cool things.

Why, because my big sister went to school in Glasgow, Scotland and my daughter goes to school in Shanghai China, roughly 6,000 miles away.

It is a small world after all.

Here’s a nice new entry into the crowded photo filters market on iOS. More subtle than most and, wonder of wonders, it’s a universal app so it’ll run nicely on an iPad too.

I just created a list on Facebook of all the cool Photographers and Photography pages that I follow. Why post that here? Well, I tried to share my newly developed list on Facebook and it refused to let me. No error message, just nothing when I press the share button.

So, here I am sharing a Facebook list on Google+.

I trust that +Friends+Me  will do the rest for me.

Insights

One of the reasons that I started my Facebook page was to check out Facebook’s page analytics, Insights. I’m please that I hit the required follower threshold pretty quickly. 

It’s interesting. I wish Google would provide similar analytics. It shouldn’t be too difficult, I’m sure the data is being collected.

A Good Start

Last night, I finally decided to set up a Facebook page for my photography. I uploaded just over a year’s photos to fill it out. I’m please to say that by this morning, I had the required number of followers to enable me to give it a meaningful name. So, here it is, facebook.com/frassmith.photography

Feel free to follow me there if Facebook is your preferred platform, if not, don’t worry, I’ll still be posting everything here on Google+ as well.

Agarwood Incense Museum

Yesterday we took the girls to visit the Agarwood Incense Museum beside Suzhou Creek. A fascinating, hands-on, experience where we all got to attempt to make incense burners like this. Not as simple a task as it looks.
