SMN Story – 1-19-2013 – Interfaith Efforts
Article after exploratory Interfaith Taskforce Meeting on 1-17-2013 at The Savannah Baptist Center
If there's one thing that will make even the most powerful computer feel like a 7 year old rig, it's Adobe Lightroom paired with RAW files from any high-megapixel camera. In my case, I spent over a year of spare time editing 848GB worth of 11,000+ 42-megapixel RAW photos and 4K videos from my New Zealand trip and making these nine photosets. I quic […]
I'm not much of a reader. Never have been. I never saw the value. The thought of sitting down and reading a book felt as much of a chore as doing laundry or cleaning my stovetop. I thought my time was better spent hacking on side projects, editing and making photosets (just kidding, that's always worth it), working or watching a movie on one of man […]
Getting started with Raspberry Pi
In early 2012 an intriguing single-board computer with a weird name hit the market. For the low price of $35, you could get a fully functioning computer that could run a real operating system. It was called the Raspberry Pi and it was the brainchild of a UK charity called the Raspberry Pi Foundation. They saw the need for an affordable computer after seeing […]
Review: Project Fi by Google
After being with my phone carrier for over a decade, Google's new Project Fi phone service got me to switch. Here's why. I got my first mobile phone sometime around 2002 on Cingular Wireless. They were then acquired by AT&T in 2004 and I never really looked at another carrier since. I just never really had enough issues to consider switching to […]
10 years blogging
On August 2nd, 2005, I made my first real foray into making a home on the web by registering paulstamatiou.com. I was a sophomore at Georgia Tech and had spent the summer tinkering around with Linux as a result of spending my freshman year in a dorm with other Linux users. I previously ran two other websites; most recently a wiki devoted to computer modding. […]
Storage for Photographers (Part 2)
Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily […]
Designing Twitter Video
In mid-2011, Twitter rolled out the ability to natively tweet photos. 2013 brought media-forward timelines with inline photos. 2014 ushered in multi-photo tweets and animated GIF support. We've just announced Twitter Video to help you capture the moment and tweet video from within the iOS and Android apps. I'm proud of the level of fit and finish w […]
Traveling and photography (Part 1)
Over the last two years I have spent a lot of time on the photos section of this website. I have redesigned and refactored it a few times, along the way evolving it to a place to support and house my passion projects: in-depth photo stories from my travels. These photo stories are the perfect coalescence of my passions: design, development, travel and photog […]
Getting started with drones
Drone. Quadcopter. Phantom. Dronie. You’ve no doubt heard about these terms with increasing gusto in recent months. They are everywhere in the news now; from seeing more dronies slide into your Twitter timeline and taking dronecations with Travel By Drone to an influx of startups taking drone tech to new heights. Heck, even Martha Stewart got in on the act w […]
Provide meaning with motion
Last week I attended Google I/O for the first time and participated on a small panel about cross-platform design challenges. There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notificat […]
