A couple of weeks ago, I started a new job with MLBAM. Major League Baseball Advanced Media. MLBAM was announced in the beginning of the year of 2000. All of the Major League Club owners voted to centralize all of Baseball’s Internet operations into this one independent company. It’s amazing the amount of technological depth that MLBAM has as well as the breadth that they cover. Of course, we cover Baseball, but there’s also hockey, wrestling, soccer, video streaming for…

Now that I’m working from home again, 100%, I am carving out a new routine. A routine that will allow me to get a bit of exercise, relaxation, and a bit of photography. In general, I get up very early, around 5:00 AM. When it starts getting light, I hit the road and do my walk. I try to do 5 miles/day. When I return, take a shower, fix breakfast, and head out to my patio to sit and watch…

There’s a new kid in town, the Leica M-D.

Basically, they’ve taken the M-9 digital camera and removed the LCD screen. They say that this “leads to more freedom for creative photography”. So, basically, this is similar to a film camera and it costs the same as M9, about $6,000 USD…

Hidden in the bustling metropolis that is Marion, NC there is a restaurant named Bruce’s Fabulous Foods. Even though Marion is some 100 miles from Charlotte, I’d heard, on more than one occasion about this iconic institution. I’m sure that they’ve also heard about it in places like Asheville, NC and as far north as Huntersville, NC. 😀 If I remember correctly, the first place that I heard it was from my friend, Tom Dills. Tom had mentioned that each…

A few weeks ago while I was having some work done on my house, I remarked to Shane, one of the carpenters about his skill. At the time, he was standing on the top rung of a ladder (where it warns you not to stand), holding a piece of moulding, making a 45 degree cut with his battery powered circular saw, and talking to me at the same time. He put the piece in place and it fit damned near…

Before I say what I want to say, know that I have nothing at all against Carl Icahn, or what he said to the AIG CEO … nothing at all. There’s no rich guy hateration going on here. Dude’s a billionaire, wants more, owns a percentage of AIG, and his words carry weight! That said, I’d never been so close to the fire as now. Back and October, Carl Icahn, activist investor and corporate raider who made his billions by…
