Starting on a tangent: I think we have a tendency to overestimate the capabilities of technology. I used the Samsung auto blur background tool to treat the photo of Tina and Reece, and produced a substandard result that seems badly Photoshopped. The photo team at Samsung have quite a way to go to catch up to Apple.
Tangent to a tangent: that word "Photoshopped" reminds me of a great app Allan and Nicole discovered last week called "Screenshop", which helps people identify and buy clothing based on photos. It is a really cool piece of tech!
What happened this week?
It's Sam's birthday today - happy 29th, you old man. Instead of celebrating with him, I am days behind in terms of work, and trying desperately make heads and tails of everything.
It has been an extremely busy week, and so the blog has once again fallen victim to my neglect. I think this is why I cannot have a pet. Poor Rover would have died of starvation and loneliness long ago. It seems that my forgetfulness also led to a lot of missed photo opportunities, like coffee with Syed, chats with Matt and Paul, meeting Francois, meeting Janelle, and all the other meetings before and between.
I think perhaps it was a week of too many meetings and too little doing.
This post will end here. I have to collect my thoughts, and write something more meaningful and insightful later.
