The fate of the servers, the fate of the cameras

Om Malik sees similarities between cameras and servers:

But mostly, our pictures β€” even the best ones β€” function as glorified postcards on Instagram, Facebook, or some other messaging app. No one on WhatsApp cares if you made a photo in 50 megapixels or 12 megapixels Just as, in the cloud, no one gives two hoots if your server is Sun, Dell or HP.

I think he’s onto something. I also agree with him: I love my camera.

Effort and beauty

112/365 The village
Our effort was awarded with this beautiful view.

We set off from one village, cycling onwards and upwards. One kilometer. Two kilometers. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. After ten kilometers we were rewarded with this beautiful view.

Effort and beauty.

That’s what defined our day.
