    @dispophoto - what I fantastic story! Of course it's terrible for the embezzlement and disappointment to have occurred, but what a cool position to find yourself in. I don't think I've ever heard of a clearer or better example of the way new media can enable reporting that maybe previously wouldn't have happened.

    Thanks, @oddbill. it is amazing how far along media technology has come.

    I forgot to mention our marketing aspect: facebook.
    we take a frame grab and post the picture on our facebook page, then those of our deaf contacts (plus others) who are high profile plus have a large number of friends, we tag them to the picture and link it to our website.

    *BANG*

    our page counts hit the stratosphere.

    The best thing is that Estonia in the winter looks exactly like their flag. With the snow, the forests and the amazingly sunny sky. Makes you want to go out and sunbathe... until you remember it's -20C out there.

    It really sucks that this has happened, but as a former journalist in a field which includes a lot of flying around the world and editing stuff on the go, I also can't but wonder how accessible that is nowadays. You can whip up TV quality stuff easily with stuff that fits in your backpack and collaborate easily over the net in three continents. I think that it's just fucking awesome.

    Mister Seb Fowler.
    … I am rather charmed by your eyebrow waggling antics.

    @dispophoto
    I wish to chime in with those saying that the shitty part is indeed shitty, but what an exciting spot to find yourself in!

    Ms. Zo.
    (Apologies if 'Ms' is not an appropriate honorific for a being from your plane. I've never even left the planet, so I really just don't know better.)
    You are fancy.


    Snippy snip!
    Le snippy snip.

    Oh man, Vorn and Oldhat's Metal Pan made my day, SebFowler's throat singing is awesome, ODA's ear protectors are awesome, Zo's cake pic is awesome and dispophoto's story is super-awesome. Holy storming wow!

    And me, I was drunk at karaoke and apparently my friend was trying to channel something through a plastic coat-hanger. You fool! It only works with metal ones!

    alex late feb 11

    BANG!

    I was trying to look neutral-if-slightly-interested-on-something-to-my-right in this picture, but like in all my non-smiling pictures, I came off like a guy trying to choose which window to jump out of.

    Surely my face cannot look like this when I'm relaxing it --



    -- fuck.

    Andre you are ROCKIN' the facial hair. And if it helps, I do think you look neutral-if-slightly-interested-in-something-to-your-right in the first one :)
