Cool views


The Washington Post has drank the Microsoft kool-aid and is hosting several photosynth projects on their website. It’s neat technology, though you’ll need to install something on your local computer to support it. Is it worth it? Well, WaPo describes it thus: “With a 360 degree view and the ability to zoom in close enough to see the smallest details of Lincoln’s eye, users can explore the memorial more closely than they ever could in person.”

Available ‘synths:’

The Lincoln Memorial
The National Museum of the American Indian
The Air and Space Museum

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
