David Bowie

Bradford Benn    January 11, 2016    No Comments on David Bowie

There are many things on my mind about David Bowie’s passing yesterday. I am struck by the loss and the suddenness of it. Mr. Bowie knew it was coming and wanted to be private about it. Perhaps that is what makes, I should write made, him so special. One of my favorite songs is “Heroes”. Whenever a dear friend of… Read more »

My Photo of 2015

Bradford Benn    December 31, 2015    No Comments on My Photo of 2015

I was not planning on doing a selection of the “Best of…” as I find them odd. However after a tweet from Marian Call simply asking, “Have read all of Twitter. Tell me one good thing about your 2015?” My first answer was a little flippant of saying meeting Marian. Yes, that is still a highlight.  After I thought it… Read more »

Steam Security Softness

As my faithful reader reader knows, I have opinions about security and privacy. One of the things that has been a challenge is when providers and software do not take security as seriously. A prime offender is Steam currently. This opinion was formed before the December 25, 2015 problems with displaying information improperly. My opinion started last year in December… Read more »

Desktop photoshoot behind the scenes

My favorite culinary scientist, Alton Brown, has a rule for the kitchen that there should only be one unitasker; a fire extinguisher. Makes a lot of sense.

Creative Commons Share and Share Alike for my domain

As I was taking pictures this weekend I thought about how I want people to be able to use my content and thoughts. Part of this was sparked also by my recent appearance on AVNation’s AVWeek Podcast Episode 189: I Know Who To Call. Tim brought up some topics that I have both experience with and opinions about, so I… Read more »

New Workspace

Over the past few weeks I have been more mindful of my health and the amount of time I spend just sitting. I could be sitting in front of a computer, in front of the video display providing entertainment, sitting in the car … etc. Yes, it is no longer a television, most don’t have tuners and are just displaying… Read more »
