Idea: Connecting Cameras

October 13, 2006

Have you ever been the one who actually has to take the group photo?

First, you’re not in the picture because your friends care about you the least (otherwise, they would actually want you in the shot). Then, to make matters worse, everybody in the group wants a photo of *the same damn shot* with their own camera. The end result: you have to take the same picture 10 times.

Sometimes you have a intelligent friend.  He says, “Hey, just let me take it with my camera, and I’ll send you the pictures later.” However, sometimes said “friend” always forgets to e-mail the photos. For instance, I have a friend who constantly steals away part of our souls when we’re out, and always “promises” to send the pictures to us later. Without fail, it never happens.

Well, why not just have cameras that can send pictures to each other via a wireless connection? Then there’ll be no excuse for your friend not to give you the pictures right then and there.


Current Addictions

  • Playing Hapland.  I find the Hapland series to be quite stimulating, having played the first two (One coworker told me the third is incredibly hard).
  • Espresso.  What can I say, I need it to get through the day 90% of the time.
  • Juggling.

YouTube: Stanford vs. Arizona 2004: ESPN Highlights 

We camped out for an entire week for this game, just so we could stand front and center, right behind Dick Vitale. There were probably 50 tents outside of Maples the night before the game. Sure, for a basketball-crazed school like Duke, that’s nothing, but for Stanford, that was really amazing…

“everywhere you look”

I was discussing how YouTube is basically America’s Funniest Home Videos on the Internet, and that led me to think about Bob Saget. From there, I started thinking about Full House, and of course, I checked Wikipedia. Then I clicked on Danny Tanner (Bob Saget’s character), and I found the following gem:

Danny often dated beautiful models despite the fact that he was a dork and very skinny.

I guess there’s hope for me after all.

Edit:  Apparently Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) is rumored to be Alanis Morrisette’s first lover, and the subject of the song “You Oughta Know.”  Link
