No, I don’t need any help – I’m doing just fine on my own…

Those of us who live in the neighborhood often see this man, navigating along the street with his cane. It’s a natural instinct to offer assistance when he’s crossing the street, and he tends to be fairly short-tempered and grouchy when he turns us down. But indeed, he does seem to be doing just fine on his own…

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

This was taken at the north end of Verdi Park, on what I thought was a relatively mild mid-day Monday in February; the temperature was in the mid-40s, and most people (including me) were wearing somewhat lighter jackets than what we had been forced to wear throughout most of January. But not this woman: she was obviously still very, very cold…

This fellow can often be found, sitting quietly, hour after hour, on Broadway between 79th and 80th Street.

Note: this photo was published in a Sep 4, 2009 Change.org blog titled "5 Things You Absolutely Must Know About Homelessness." It was also published in a Mar 31, 2010 Washington Area Women’s Foundation blog, titled "Giving Back to the Homeless." And it was published in a Sep 21, 2011 Huffington Post blog titled "Hunger In Chicago: Study Shows 1 In 5 Chicagoans Aren’t Sure Where They’ll Find Their Next Meal." It was also published in a Nov 18, 2011 blog titled "Thanksgiving: Food for Thought . . . ’cause that’s all some folks have [35 PICS]."

Works fine. Has some minor scratches and dents as seen in pics. Battery life is still great. The main issue is that the headphone jack stopped working. Sometimes I can wiggle it to make it work, but it’s more or less shot. Still fine as a mini computer or use with airplay.

Computer science and engineering students put a semester’s worth of work to the test on Wednesday (April 28, 2004) when 14 teams put the robots they built into competition on the University Park campus. The challenge is for the battery-operated robots to successfully navigate a maze to complete a task.

I bought a battery charger so that I wouldn’t have to worry about my cell phone battery dying. It’s huge overkill for just a cell phone but it will also rescue my netbook and camera. Of course, it means that I basically pack the standard charge and then the separate connectors for each gadget that I packed.

Wrist Computer Concept Question
Computer Battery

Image by Brick Farmer
Those of you who have read Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy will know what I mean when I say wristpad.
For those who don’t, a wristpad is a wrist-worn computer formfactor.
This design consists fo a combination flexible touchscreen/battery (each exist), and a small control module containing the processors, a battery, a small camera, a laser pointer, and a few white LEDs. The display would wrap around most of the wrist, clasping on the side farthest from the control module. The computer would be ambidextrous, displaying the watch on one side fo the wrist, and other information on the other. The processor would not have to be very powerful, because only a few applications could run on such a limited screen resolution. It could, however, be used as a music player, supporting mp3, wav, aac, ogg, wma, and flac. Audible, too, probably. The device could aso serve as a bluetooth extension to a phone, or mabye have a phonen built in. Either way, it could use a cellular connection to grab and display information like stocks, weather, launch time, maybe RSS. Full-page web browsing is a definite nogo. Leave that to your lectern.
Input would be through the touchscreen and mabye the bezels around the ends of the control package. Also probably a button at the non-camera/light end of the control module, but that might be where the earbuds enter.
Hmm. Designing Human Interface Devices is hard.

What should I add to it?

Screen mock-ups to come.
