Chief of Engineering’s Log: Stardate – August, 2019
So, the Gallagher guy suggested that our blog content expands a bit beyond just the cadence of the new gear, the firmware updates, the software updates the events and the specials.
The ensemble team here has skillsets that extend far beyond the roles we play at the shop, and it is this roundedness that make client interactions all the more fun because we have many things to talk about outside of just the camera gear-head stuff. I mean, have you seen the cool cars that Kristin drives to work?
I endeavor to know as much as I can about the camera systems we support, and beyond using the gear for the occasional commercial shoots I’m apt to do, it’s literally my job to take cameras home and play. What a nice job I have.
I play at a bunch of other things as well, and am publishing bits and pieces on things I’m reading, watching, working on, designing etc.
Doing a little light listening today while testing cameras… 😉
“It is the job of science is to figure out what guesses are right and what are wrong. Scientists are paid for making guesses, not for making right guesses but for making interesting plausible ones, and if scientists after the guess has been made, don’t do their job, don’t investigate the guess, don’t figure out if it’s true or false, then we are false to science, we are betraying science.“ – David Gelernter
Mathematical Challenges To Darwin’s Theory Of Evolution, With David Berlinski, Stephen Meyer, And David Gelernter
““Beauty is often a telltale sign of truth. Beauty is our guide to the intellectual universe—walking beside us through the uncharted wilderness, pointing us in the right direction, keeping us on track—most of the time.” Gelernter notes that there’s no reason to doubt that Darwin successfully explained the small adjustments by which an organism adapts to local circumstances: changes to fur density or wing style or beak shape. Yet there are many reasons to doubt whether Darwin can answer the hard questions and explain the big picture—not the fine-tuning of existing species but the emergence of new ones.”
