My Earliest ExposureTo Computers (Happy Birthday Macintosh)

Twenty-seven years ago I was exposed to my first computer. The elementary school I attended (John Lewis Childs School in Floral Park, NY) recognized the importance of exposing children to computers at an early age. The school built a computer lab and stocked it with Apple II and Apple IIe computers. With increasing frequency, grades 1 through 6 shared use of the computer lab. Activities included everything from playing games to entering simple programs in BASIC. The first time I used a…[...]

Get In The Holiday Spirit With the Empire State Building [UPDATED]

Apple might be out to lunch on the issue but I figured out a workaround that will let you update via OTA,…[...]

9/11 Tribute In Light – Royalty Free Stock Photos

Last night was the first time since September 11, 2001 that I made an effort to view anything related to that tragic day. I hopped on my bike and rode to Brooklyn Bridge Park with the intention of zoning out to the Tribute in Light. What I encountered at the park was an army of professional photographers competing for the best shots to sell on stock photo sites. The unfortunate truth is that 9/11 has spawned an entire commercial industry. I’ve written [...]
