Topped One Million Individual Flickr Views

Sometime overnight the view count for my individual Flickr photos topped one million! As long as there were no pirates or Walking Dead governors checking our my images, it’s actually more like two million since everybody has two eyes and that means each eye views it. Bazinga! Lately my numbers have been on an increase, …

Nature’s Realm Turns 2

My Tumblr blog turned two years old today! Reminded me that I actually have to do something with it again. Got plenty of my images to share and other people’s stuff to repost. Now to just remember to do it. A gift of cotton is appropriate.

Google Plus Me

Finally received my long-awaited, custom, vanity Google+ URL before another Peter Csanadi claimed it. (I’m looking at you, Director of Global PR for adidas!) Only took a little over two years to get it. I am now an official Google somebody, along with about a million others. Just wish some of my close friends also …

Finally Reached One Million

It took a few years and I can mainly thank all those out there interested in my female cosplay photos, but I finally passed my one millionth view on Flickr. True, it’s a combined number for photos, sets and collections, but I’ll still take it. Plus, my total for individual photo views is not far …

My Immersion

I tried out a new social graphing service today called Immersion that gives me data about my gmail collaboration with others in visual graph form. It was created by three individuals at MIT and it only accesses the To, From and timestamps of emails so there’s no actual reading of my emails. It has a …

Foursquare Infographic

Found out today that Foursquare has introduced a cool new service called Time Machine that displays a person’s check-ins using infographics and even an animated map of their travels. The check-ins are broken down into data points that among other things include categories, most recent and most visited check-ins, as well as badges earned and …

Back On Cali’s Radar

After all these years of listening to and/or watching a multitude of tech podcasts, Cali Lewis is still the one podcaster/tech journalist that gets me all twitterpated. And, after a long drought of not contacting her, I sent her a short tweet which she quickly replied to. So you’re saying there’s a chance…

A New Look

Finally, after wanting to update my blog to a new theme for a very long time, I found a really good free one that I liked called Graphene. Spent a good chunk of my day creating a new header from one of my photos and adjusting all the settings that the theme offered, but I …

My Tweets, Vizified

So I signed up for an account with Vizify, which then gathered my Twitter data and created a short animated infographic that showed me information like what I tweet about the most, what was my most popular tweet, what times of the day I most often post, and the three Tweeters I interact with most. …

New Gmail Layout With Tabs

Gmail finally started rolling out an update that includes long-awaited tabs. I’m sure a lot of the subscribers will be unhappy with the new design (which can be turned on or off at any time) but personally, I think it’s fantastic and will keep my gmail inbox a heck of a lot more organized. The …

My #Wooden @Anniversary

Today marks the 5th anniversary of me signing up on Twitter.  After 1,585 tweets, having 93 followers (almost all of them legit) and me following 130 others, I readily admit that I have never truly used Twitter to its full potential. I’ve had some impressive (to me) people reply/favorite some of my tweets, or even …

Old Flickr Record Completely Blown Away

While out gallivanting on another one of my San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park adventures yesterday I completely missed that I had by far my highest single day viewing ever on Flickr with 56,186. At first I thought the stats had gone horribly wrong and that there was a bug in the system, a fly …

Workspace Glimpse

Here’s a quick glance at what my desktop looks like whenever I work on a set of photos in Photoshop. This is a bit more extreme than normal, but it is also not a rare occurrence. Often I have to split a job up into smaller groups because there just are too many images to …

Major Pinterest Update

Logged into Pinterest this morning only to find that they had implemented some major changes to the user interface. Usually I don’t mind updates to apps, even web apps, and this didn’t change that. While I really like the larger, borderless thumbnails, and the much larger images you get when you click on a thumbnail …

Missed My Flickr Best

Trying to regularly keep up with all the different online services I belong to or moderate is pretty much impossible. And that means that each one of them is guaranteed to suffer from my lack of involvement on a rotating basis. No pinning to my boards for a couple of days, or no posting updates, …
