Here's a view of downtown L.A. and the 110 Freeway from 30 flights up. It's an 8 second exposure.

Ben Folds

I saw Ben Folds tonight. He's one of the best musicians I've ever seen, especially when it comes to rock music. His rhythm and dynamics are amazing live. And those are the 2 most important parts of music performance.

Go see him next time, and you'll agree. Wow.

This dab of bbq sauce reminds me of Slimer from Ghostbusters. Maybe it's just me...

Another great moment at West Wing Night.

If you don't know about WWN, I can't tell you. Sorry. The first rule of WWN is you don't talk about WWN.

the Google Phone

the Google Phone, originally uploaded by billaday.

I got a Google Phone for my birthday. It's really sweet.

The G1 has free apps; consequently, I have over 50 apps on my phone. One of my favorites is called "Zombie, Run!" It shows your (real-life) location and then adds (not real-life) zombies to the map. You run (in real life) and try to avoid the zombies on the map. The other night I was running, dodging, and jumping around my culdesac playing this game.

red, red, all around, see the red things I have found

So, if you've never geotagged a photo... it's awesome. Every single photo of my photo-a-day is on this map. I think it's a cool way to browse photos, and to remember where you've been.

I now use HoudahGeo, found at to add photos to a map before they get to (iPhoto or) Flickr. It is REALLY good, and is an awesome solution for geotagging. Photos are now on a map on Flickr and in iPhoto. It's really neat. Go buy HoudahGeo.
