King of Pop poped the Internet

Yesterday during the time of Micheal Jackson's death and the insuring news coverage (3-4 PDT) Internet usage spiked 11% from normal. It is pretty interesting to see what happens to our communication grids when major news breaks. To that effect asks wither or not the Internet is a reliable source for news and info if it has the ability to slow/ crash at these times. Here is an interesting article/ opinions on that topic.
p.s. This graphic is where the spikes were the biggest.

The Edge is an Interesting Place.

Based on what some of my Ladies with Lenses said, I have noticed an 'outside looking in' kind of feeling to a lot of my photographs. I do seem to be the observer of my family and in a way a self proclaimed black sheep. As much as I have wanted to feel totally included I always have felt more on the edge then in the thick of things. This has more to do with me in many ways then my cousins, for reasons I am not quite sure. I will have to go back and look at the last year to see what I can find that speaks to this.

what my day looked like

At work we have daily status meetings, today's ran long. While some things were being discussed I began to doodle. This is what came out and I got a few complements on it. Not really sure what it means but I know parts of it were drawn when parts of the conversations took a turn. Read into if you want Dr. Freud.

The great edit

I have sorted thought my 506 first round picks from my shooting over the last year, and while I am not done ( I got it down to 98) and I know I have missed some good ones. I don't really know what I want to make from all of it. There are many different routes I could go. For instances, I have quite a few photos of my father. I also have many photos of my family at gatherings, that is what i thought I wanted to document from the start. But then there are still photos from around the house and other places I go that I like, so I don't want to discount them. Here are a few from the selection.

my two cents

I have been thinking lately about how I need to start doing more with my images. I feel I now have some, not all, of the tools to do that. This being said I hope to post more photographs here and start doing what I said I would at the beginning of the year, to post once a week. I have lots of new images, but it seems to be find the time to sit down and go through that that is the hard part. I hope/ plan to change that in the coming month or two. It all starts with making a promise to my self to make some changes and doing my best to live up to it. So there is my two cents.
