Made a useful discovery while restoring my hacked site from the database backup. I needed a way to list all the images missing from my media library, as well as which folders they were missing from. The Regenerate Thumbnails plugin does this as part of its logging process.
PATH weekend service is going to be a mess for the next two years. So I made a five-second survey to help log the worst of it: Once we have a decent sample of responses, we'll be sending this to the Port Authority as hard evidence that more needs to … Continue Reading ››
Most of it has been restored from backup, but you may notice a big chunk of my images are missing. They'll be back soon.
Modeled with Archimesh, rendered with Cycles (which is megaslow, even with a decent GPU). Little bit of Photoshop post-processing to soften things up. And yes, I know the window opens backwards. I like it that way. Click for big:
Finally got around to redoing the site. Still have a few more tweaks, but I've hopefully cleared out the bitrot and will actually get back to updating this thing once in a while. It's also well past time to update my portfolio and recut my reel. Being a staffer makes me lazy about that.

We play with experimental hardware and software, explore the possibilities created by the proliferation of affordable, hackable tools for capturing depth and motion, and try to figure out how to incorporate them into our … Continue Reading ››
FRONTLINE: Climate of Doubt is up for a news/documentary Emmy for Outstanding Continuing Coverage. Sure, 18 episodes of FRONTLINE got nominations in various categories this year (we're actually up against two others, along with an HBO doc), but I'm still really proud of this one. The whole crew did an awesome job.
So I'm not sure why anyone was really shocked by the whole PRISM thing -- I can't be the only person who just assumed this was happening all along? But wow, those slides are terrible. Yikes. For something designed to find important information buried in a lot of nonsense, it makes doing exactly that a … Continue Reading ››
After witnessing the collective freakout of basically everyone I know in production yesterday over the announcement that Adobe's going subscription-only, I've been thinking a lot about the news. There are plenty of legitimate concerns (can't say I'm thrilled about it myself), but I don't think there's any need to abandon ship immediately. A few things … Continue Reading ››
