Live Video Chat on Thursday!
This Thursday, November 19th, at 7 PM CST (5 PM PST), I’ll be hosting a live video chat here on the site! I’ll also be making a special announcement at the beginning of the chat. You don’t need anything special, just come to that page! You’ll see my live video mugshot along with Sara Jane Todd from Peachpit. There is a chat window where you all can ask questions, and Sara Jane will pull random ones and ask me… I’ll answer to the best of my ability! This is all QUITE experimental, so I hope you come along to join us! And please, don’t crash my server like that night we opened the Workshop for registrations!
We have a newsletter going out today. It’s a free thing to sign up for and it will make your inbox pretty! It’s a great way to share photos with friends and family. Also, this is very interesting — someone sent me this full “analysis” of our newsletter! Hehe. It is entitled “Is it Ever OK to Break Best Practices?” I know that most users here have a high screen resolution, good bandwidth, and enjoy seeing big, pretty pics. I can’t make everyone happy, but we decided to keep that newsletter pretty big and bold!
Daily Photo – Zipping Through Tokyo
I think it rained almost every day I was in Tokyo, but that’s just fine with me. It gives you all these “Black Rain” conditions, and makes the place twice as moody as it already was. I walked through Rappongi one evening to find a secret Italian restaurant. I ended up having to cross the road so many times on these overpasses, that I finally decided to stop and take a photo of the action underneath.
