Two Minute Tour

Two Minute Tour by Damian Gadal
It's been a very foggy September, so sunsets likes this have been few and far between.

When an opportunity for some good light presents itself, I take it.

Governance

Governance by Damian Gadal
Clearly in need of improvement and/or replacement.

Many of our current problems stem directly from poor and corrupt government at every level.

If something doesn't change soon, this parasite will kill its host.

Windows

Windows by Damian Gadal
I'm not worried about the folks in Redmond or incremental improvements in MS Office Products, those are obsolete, as are people like me who've used them for decades.

Microsoft is once again trying to be Apple. The old UI is dead, as are old applications and the way that they've been used. We're moving to a more natural and intuitive way of computing.

This is just part of the evolution of computing.

For folks like me, we'll still be able to work on spreadsheets (the nature of numbers hasn't changed), and documents until the cows come home. This type of computing is akin to working on an assembly line.

We're seeing whole new realms of computing that weren't possible a decade ago. Computing is being done with apps, and done on phones and tablets.... And all of this is still in it's infancy.

Software designers are working towards removing the learning curve. Apps will just work.

Sure there'll be lots of rubbish.... Television is a perfect example. We've added hundreds of channels and filled them with meaningless trite (reality tv? Certainly not the pinnacle of humanity).

The changes that are happening in computing are exciting. Sure, it's a pain to upgrade, no doubt about that.... I'm looking forward to the changes, and just wish they were happening faster. The possibilities are boundless.

If Microsoft doesn't adapt, it will die. They know that, and that's what we're seeing.

These are historic times on so many levels, and they require that we adapt, improvise, and overcome. We'll be the better for it.

words can't thank you enough

words can't thank you enough by Damian Gadal
One this day thousands lost their lives at the hands of hatred and evil.

Many took their last breaths so that others wouldn't have to.

Twisted Remains

Twisted Remains by Damian Gadal
We've since picked ourselves up since the Twin Towers fells, but we're not the same.

Our psyche has yet to heal.

Power Up

Power Up by Damian Gadal
So, millions of people in Southern California lose power. When you don't build infrastructure that's just bound to happen.

A modern economy can't run on wishful thinking.  Technology needs juice.
