The Lytro Light Field Camera
This camera captures "light field" data to produce "living" photographs. Light field data means "the amount of light traveling in every direction through every point in space". By capturing all light data, not just cumulative light data as film cameras do, post-production possibilities are almost limitless. For example, you can "focus" on different objects within a frame at viewing time, instead of being limited to what was in focus at capture time. The camera costs $400 to $500 at the time of this post, and the on-site Picture Gallery apparently has a few issues.

Surviving Your Serengeti
This was sent to me by a colleague who heard Stefan Swanepoel speak at a local PMI convension and decided that we should determine what animals we are.

Vatican calls for global authority on economy…
This story has made the rounds. I received the Reuters link (below) first, but decided to find other sites with the same or similar stories, partly to read the comments. The site actually had it posted, probably for the last line that states that the organization should be pleased with the Vatican’s appeal for centralized economic control, to which the organization responded, "This is the last thing we need is for the 1% to control everything. Once again the Catholic Church shows how corrupt it is!"

Rally Squirrels Taxidermy
I have to wonder about Cardinals fans now. Go Rangers!

Fake Rangers
Local sports radio hosts known as the "The Musers" like to spoof players, managers, owners, and anyone else making news. Here’s an interview with (fake) Nolan Ryan, Nelson Cruz, Mike Napoli, and CJ Wilson. Go Rangers!
