I guess it should be a sign that the sun came out today that everything should go haywire. In one instance, despite numerous times where a friend asked why I keep certain tools and one computer just for me, I say, “it is a tool, in many respects, the more you use it, the more you tune it to be an extension of yourself.”
This morning they were talking about a heavy equipment operator that could sense by feel with a huge machine when something delicate was underneath it. I thought a light bulb would go off with a few year discussion about "personal tools" when they said, “It is like the machine is an appendage to themselves.”
I did try to rephrase how tools can and do become an extension of yourself, even bringing into the design of the space shuttle robot arm and how precise the pressure is from a human hand to the grip…but that seemed to not correlate with one heavy equipment operator.
I will go up later today and set up the photo shoot again, the images i have are fine, but with no light (I wanted a specific warmth of natural light) in any of the images, I am stupid enough to keep trying. The problem is that A) I have a specific look/feel for the image in my head and B) actual experience from the past of how wonderful the image idea can look. I guess that is why I fixed the borrowed tripod with my bike yesterday afternoon. “Yes, they are supposed to be perfectly stable and have no wobble in them so you can lock the image down and experiment with exposure!”
Aside from that I have another “idea” I want to try since I can’t lock down the exposure I want either. Experiment away and pray I get lucky for ONE attempt to produce one of the desired effects.
The past few days I have been in a VF thread in linked in, and part of me wonders if we are all on the same planet. Maybe I have just traveled around more of the planet than a few others, but it is fascinating to see the perspective of how the world of stuff and money seems to influence others visions.
I guess I will load up the new version of modeling software and go into finalizing the lab designs. Then I will say a prayer and thank god that I get to work on so many interesting and at times, seemingly unrelated ideas.
Who knew one day I would be working on AI sensors for human performance, yet, at the same time I am carrying an axe to chop wood, grow all ones food and figure out the logistics of having great coffee beans shipped into the site.
I have decided growing coffee plants on that site was too much of a waste of energy and time.
