Happy New Year folks.
Wondering where I’ve been?
Easy answer: Spending my leisure time with the 6 week old kid. It’s that simple.
I haven’t fallen out of love with blogging by any means, I just have fallen in love with my son, and thus, I’ve been holding him, playing with him, getting him to smile, bouncing him, changing him, trying to get him to sleep, or eat, or changing him (yes, I wrote that twice).
I’ve also been spending time updating our family website with pictures. Lots of them.
I did some counting today of how many pictures we’ve taken:
1,634 pictures taken since November 23, 2004
7 hours of video shot since then (and edited into about 30 minutes of useable video at this point)
Between May 23, 1998 and November 23, 2004, we took a total of about 3500 photos. That’s 3,500 photos over 6 years (give or take). We didn’t shoot any video in that same time frame.
Compare those two data points.
Anyone wanna buy stock in Kodak or Fuji now? Or maybe Canon or Epson?
Or, if you’re smart you’d buy it in Apple, as of those 1600+ photos we’ve taken, we’ve printed about 100 (in triplicate for the grandparents). And we ordered those photos from Apple through iPhoto. We also printed 4 Photo Books from iPhoto.
I’ve bought 50 songs from iTunes for use in the videos I’m making with iMovie, and I’m burning DVD’s for the grandparents with iDVD.
I thought I knew what Steve Jobs meant by “digital hub” a few years ago… boy was I wrong. I now know what he meant.
Wishing you all a good 2005… I’m sure I’ll get back to posting over here again soon.
p.s. my little birdies tell me that ThinkSecret’s predictions about a new sub $500 Mac are true… look for it in a few weeks.
