Matt Richardson shows off his Camera Collection

Matt Richardson

I just love this guy. Not only is he SO adorable, but I am such a nerd about technology, making things, and more. It’s fun watching how excited he gets about the things he shares with us.

Many years ago, my dad had purchased a Bell & Howell 8mm movie camera and projector. I bet it’s still in their house somewhere. I played with that camera when I was a kid and filmed a few movies on it.

In the early 80’s, I had all of my parents home movies transferred to a VHS tape. It was cool seeing my parents so young. There were honeymoon shots. Movies of me and my sister as infants and early birthdays. I really should find that video and convert it to digital. I hope my parents still have it. Hmmmmmm…..

Here’s Matt and his camera collection. An interesting tid-bit; I work with a guy that has the same floppy disk camera that Matt demonstrates in the video. The only difference is that he is still using it. I converted 6 or 7 other camera users (it’s required for their job) to new high resolution digital camera’s with EyeFi cards that store the images in folders on a server. They LOVE it, and it’s improved the usage immensely. But, he won’t change. He LOVES that floppy disk camera and I got to where I would joke about stealing it in the night.

This a great article about the possible future of Feedburner.com

I’m a HEAVY user of RSS feeds and I’ve setup many RSS feeds through feedburner. I, like Chris, am VERY optimistic that Google will do the right thing, and at a minimum, give us a fair timeline if they do decide to shutdown.

I’m also using feedly completely now. I’m not totally in love with it. They only support a few of the google keyboard shortcuts. There are some issues with the app losing focus when you’ve watched an embedded video. Clicking anywhere outside of the video doesn’t get the focus back and allow shortcuts to work. I’m hoping this will get worked out as they improve their service, but it’s annoying as hell.

As Chris says, “Here’s to hoping that if this happens it will be fairly painless! #RSS4LYFE”
