Most Interesting Photos of 2010

My Most Interesting Photos of 2010 set track photos taken in 2010 that have ranked in the top 200 of my ~4200 pictures on flickr. Currently at 44 photos it's quite the drop from from 2009's 114. It think I spent more time on specific shoots and posted less of the random photography from my life. I do I have a number of things from 2010 that I never got to posting.

Ultra Wide Christmas Walk

Sharing the Path
My family gave me Sigma's new 8-16mm Ultra Wide Lens for Christmas. We were also blessed with +4c weather today :) So we went for a walk in Fish Creek and I took the camera and new lens along. I've very happy with the results.

Thank you family :)

Social Network Christmas

So a Social Network Christmas isn't the Huron Carol, it's still a cool retelling of the story. Video by Igniter Media. As seen on Waving or Drowning.

Playing God? Towards machines that deny their maker

Having enjoyed the questions of faith raised in Tron and the re-imagined Battle Star Galactica I was drawn toward the lecture title of Playing God? Towards machines that deny their maker by Prof Rosalind Picard of M.I.T.

Rosalind W. Picard is founder and director of the Affective Computing Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her current work includes developing systems that can read the emotional non verbal cues and translates them for people who have a hard time reading them for themselves. It's a fascinating lecture.
