OK, so you thought this blog was dead? Hah! You were right.
(In case you can't quite recognize it, Typepad promptly deleted my old design when I canceled my Typepad Pro account. I wasn't quite prepared for that, as I had paid to 6 more months. Typepad customer support cheerfully suggested I just paid them again and rebuilt it from scratch. Heh.)
Last time we spoke I was starting work at Vodafone. What to say about that... my stint with huge corporations? I wanted to learn, and I learned a lot! But what I learned was quite different from what I set out to learn! And my relationship to Dilbert has completely changed.
But now I'm back in the Rebel camp, and my God, it feels great to swing that lightsaber again! Of all things, I'm starting up a hardware company. A hardware start-up? Doing Consumer Electronics? Are you out of your mind? As one of my best friends said when he heard about it, 'That must be your stupidest idea yet". Don't you just love the varm and fuzzy feeling inside when your nearest and dearest show confidence and support for you? :-)
We're reinventing the flash. That would be 'strobe' for you Americans. I figure nothing much has really happened to the camera flash since the xenon bulb replaced the magnesium powder. The plan is to use new materials and fancy electronic magic to open up new creative possibilities for photogs of all kinds. Cool, or what?
You can't be a designer and not be into photography at some level. Maybe you know about the whole off-camera strobe movement that originated over at at strobist? Maybe you even know about the new HDSLR cameras and all the amazing stuff people are doing with them? If not, have a look here or here.
You know this is cool, so come along for the ride! It's going to be fun. I've just sat up a blog, it looks a bit spartan right now, but Steve at DoubleDigg is on the case and will fix it up in a few days time. That's what he tells me, anyway :-)
See y'all around!
