2009/365/151 Powered by the iSun

It was a while ago I blogged something about Doing Something Solar... I've not done a *whole* lot since then, but am planning on some research over the (sunny) summer on what it might take to rig some solar panels into my home grid.

The folks at Connect2Earth were nice enough for doing something nice for me- for mentioning of their project, they sent me this cool gift. It is a Solio Hybrid Charger which has panels that can use the sun to fill its battery and in turn, re-charge any device powered by USB type connectors, including the iPhone.

I've charged the battery up since I got home and will be testing the power of the phone charge (I don't know if it is me, but my phone seems to charge more fully off of the A/C than my laptop).

I can see some future use as a backpack tool just so I can fully geek out (or call for help) out in the woods. But even at home, if I keep this charged by the sun, and use it to power the phone and my mp3 player, well, it might just be a tiny tiny less amount of electric sucked from the coal burning on the grid.

At least it seems to work better than my little hand crank/solar charger I keep in the car.

Yo, Randy Thornton, who doubted my tweets of Arizona rain in May-- this the 4th day in a row we've seen rain clouds and actual water falling from the sky.

I cannot ever remember seeing any rain in May- usually smack in the middle of the dry stretch of the last April storms and the first monsoon thunderstorms in July.

But I am not complaining, and neither are the always thirsty trees and my soon to be cultivated vegetable garden.

2009/365/140 Hanging Out in Payson with @hrheingold

You never know who will bump into at the Bee Line Cafe in Payson, Arizona.

Nah, this was planned. Howard Rheingold was in Phoenix yesterday as a keynote speaker for the 2009 Maricopa Teaching and Learning with Technology Conference.

I had hoped to drive down for the conference, but my schedule imploded with things that needed to get done, so I had to opt out of the drive down (yeah leave lovely cool mountain air for 107 degrees). But luckily, Howard had plans to visit one of his friends who lives in Payson, which is only 18 miles from where I live, so we had plans to breakfast at the down home Bee Line (where they have the cutest grumpy old waitresses).

Born in Tucson and growing up in Phoenix in the pre suburban explosion, Howard has his AZ roots, and it was an enjoyable time talking about The Way Things Were, social media, his new book ideas, classes at Stanford / Berkeley, etc.

Thanks @hrheingold for hanging out in lively Payson!

I met one of the observers who was in s small power boat. She said that three babies were hatched and that one may have taken her first flight today-- in fact, one of the young ones was missing (two are visible here).

2009/365/136 Birth of a Pine Cone

I can almost make out the proto shape, but what starts out like some sort of a fleshy flower on this Ponderosa Pine will eventually dry out to be a cone. It will blow of the tree on a windy day perhaps next February. I will scoop it up in one of my buckets, and one cold night it will disintegrate as a hot coal in my wood stove. I will transfer the ashes to a metal can outside, eventually mixing it in with my compost. Maybe a year later, it will mix with the soil in my garden, and be reborn as perhaps an eggplant.

What a cycle. For now, I can just appreciate it for what it is- a sign of something new, something that will grow into something else, something of a lovely singular purpose.

2009/365/126 Welcome to the State (of Fear? Where?)

Today was a full 10 hours of road time, driving from State College PA north into New York, and into Vermont. While I felt warmly greeted at the Empire State line, at a subsequent rest stop, I could not be overwhelmed by the sheer number of dire warning signs, meant to?? threaten me into good behavior? Tell me who is in charge? make me fear the water?

Sure this is in one isolated place where guess previous human behavior suggests my fellow humans have not been caring to the space, but what message would a world covered in "DO NOT" and "YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED" signs be like?

(note this is NOT a knock on New York- I will do almost anything short of wearing an I <3 NY shirt--, it was just the juxtaposition of these string of signs that ticked something off...)

And don't even get me started on all of the travel places that flush toilets or turn on water for us.... Is the human condition so incapable of even the basic sanitary functions? Is the next level for the State to wipe our asses too?

Ironic as I borrowed him for the example story prompt in today's talk on 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story.

If I can remember the audience's contributions, the story here involved Joe Paterno feeding the Lion some buckeyes (or Buckeyes), when Sue shows up with some orange spray paint, finally with an appearance of the police.

(Hey, it was the audience that made this up, not me!).

Today's kayak excursion was to one of the best lakes I have explored so far- Willow Springs Lake is at the crest of the Mogollon Rim, about 25 miles east of Payson on Highway 260, and seems a lot less over run than Woods Canyon Lake.

It is very easy to get to, plenty of parking by the water, and one of the easiest put ins so far.

The water was rather high, with a lot of places to put ashore and explore. Hardly anyone on the water.

Oh, the miracle and joy of New York is just the energy of the streets, the traffic cop screaming at a slow moving bicycle, a woman balancing a slide of pizza the size of a poster, the sidewalk hawkers, the people who have perfected not looking at anyone while they are looking at everyone, the guy on the corner asking for donations for the homeless, and then adjusting his pitch to the man smoking a cigar ("Cuban cigar for the homeless?").

And for a city that out of towners seem to pack fear for or think everyone is out to get them, a tiny story. I was happily toddling down Park Ave and 2 different people called to grab my attention to return a small pack that fell out of my laptop case (the pouch with the head phones)...

2009/365/114 Planning and Making a Prezi

This is an overlay of my paper plan and final prezi piece. I recently made a prezi for my dominoe story used in 50 Web 2.0 Ways to tell a Story.

In thinking about how I would design this, I decided te "pull away" shot would be similar to the opening white on black slide used elsewhere, except the letter would be formed by smaller versions of the photos used in the story, thus spelling out in larger letters, "dominoe"

Since there are 18 photos in the story, I would need shapes to spell the rest of the letters- Originally I thought I would use white rectangles, but that would be a lot of extra presi uploads, so instead I drew small blob shapes with the prezi line tools.

Prezi is an interesting tool to design in (and the interface is #*#&#ing hard to master); the real trick seems to be effectively using the scale to hide and show elements.

Still, it was always one of my favorite hand made photos- did this one for a Photo class at Essex Community College.

Last night I pulled out a box of old prints to show a friend. These were ones I made in the late 1980s when I had my own dark room equipment, and thought it was time to digitize them into the 21st Century.

Without indication that it is okay to do, our rural mailboxes in Strawberry sprout identities with various stickers, signs, hand drawings etc. It makes sense, because as you approach a generic bank of mailboxes, how can yo tell easily which one is yours?

I was dropping some mail off today and just glanced at this box and Shazam! Photo Op.

Actually my mailbox is still virgin un-decorated.

These were just replaced after a recent incident where a drunk driver took out a few hundred boxes including mine, losing in the process my beloved red WordPress sticker.

I am in the market for a new sticker, just waiting to find the right one.

One step at a time.

2009/365/104 Textury Tulip

It's hard to get a macro shot looking down into the tulip, as the focus tends to lock on the upper parts of the petal or even the stamen (center). This photo got a bit more interesting by dropping the saturation and raising the color tint to bring out the painter-like texture inside the petals.

Sometimes the photo comes as it was taken; other times, you have to game it a bit.

2009/365/103 My New Fruit Craze

A few weeks who I was visiting a friend in Phoenix who turned me on to home made fruit smoothies using fruit Donna had saved in your freezer.

With all the fruit left over from last weekend's CyberSalonAZ gathering at my house, I have now cut up bags of strawberries, bananas, and mangoes in the freezer. I can take a few out as needed, toss them into the blender with some water/milk, and enjoy a nice fruity drink.

2009/265/83 The Connection

Since I don;t have cable or TV reception, I am going to use my computer as an "antenna" for content to watch on the new HDTV. And this new cable is the key- a DVI (from the MacBookPeo) to HDMI (to the HDTV) cable is the key.

Now I can watch on the big screen and movies / shows I bought in iTunes or the on demand movies from NetFlix, or heck, just sit back on the couch and watch TweetDeck.

Not only is the quality supreme; this one table does video and audio, so its less cable clutter. And at 5meter length, I can take the laptop over to the coffee table.
