Panoramas

Because I saw my collection of panoramas was growing large, I thought I’d share em. Some of these are made with AutoStitch but most are with Photomerge in PScs2. Click gives larger versions and location info, but guess before you look.

Facebook: Uses and Abuses

facebook I made a 5 minute primer minidocumentary on Facebook. I had a Canon Gl2 sitting in front of me one sunny day and decided to swing over to UCLA and get some facebook stories to share with the internet. I tried to interview a broad swath of characters and I think I ended up with a good image of the kinds of people who use Facebook for different kinds of things. Consider this a rough draft.

Not all are college students.

Some brought up comparisons with MySpace into their answers, so you can also get a taste of how people feel about the free for all profile swamp.

I had dreams of making a comic opus including tense interviews with collective theory sociologists on campus and with University Police to see if they scan facebook profiles (or if I could film a sting operation) but I’ll wait to see how this video is received.
