Back in the saddle

Hi all. I'm back in Victoria after an extended hiatus at the cottage in Buena Vista. Time to hunker down and get this business back on track.

While I'm doing that, I thought you might be interested in watching this clip from the 1984 Apple Shareholders' meeting. This is the kind of video that was very, very high tech back then. I don't know for sure whether this was a video or a multi-projector slide show, but either way, it's pretty high quality.

Compare that video, which probably cost tens of thousands of dollars to what's available today right on your computer. Just go to the Apple website, for example, and check out this demo for the new iLife software (which comes with every Mac.)

It's been a fascinating evolution. It's changed the way we entertain ourselves and how we do business. And it's certainly not over yet.

Friday fun for August 10, 2007

My idea of fun


As you can see above, I'm enjoying some time away from it all at the cottage in Buena Vista, Saskatchewan. This is the view out my front window. It's been awhile since I posted anything to The Daily Upload so I thought I should let you know what I've been up to.

I've enjoyed a solid couple of weeks of family reunions and getting together with friends. My family had a large family reunion at the end of July on Vancouver Island, then Heather and I piled into her (small) car with our two large dogs and headed out here to Saskatchewan.

Since we arrived, I've hosted a few dozen friends at a party to celebrate my reaching the half-century mark as well as connecting with more old friends and enjoying the relaxed pace of cottage life.

I've got a couple more weeks out here before I head back to the Island, so you can expect my postings to be intermittent for awhile yet.

I hope your summer is going as well as mine.
