The Elephant, The Foreign Object, and a Long Cup of Coffee

You remember that old joke, "How do you hide an elephant in a jelly bean jar? Paint its toenails."

For purposes of this writing, anyway, that joke makes a lot more sense than you might suspect.

A Picture of Trouble

Recently, there's been a lot of noise about Kodak's threatened Chapter 11 bankruptcy. An article on The Conversation (linked from Slashdot) posits that this is not about any one device (cough*iPhone*cough) eating Kodak's lunch, but about Kodak grossly misreading the ways in which photography has moved from an archival to a social activity.

Meanwhile, I'm starting to hear noises about a 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, and hell yeah I'm going exactly where you think I'm going to.

Stop laughing, you insensitive bastards!
