In the NBA lifestyle, flying is something of a chore, something to go through rather than something to enjoy. And late-night flights across the country can leave even well-traveled players reeling from jet lag — which can make or break a practice the next day. In these pl...

Keeping Your Collection/Album Organization in Sync

I love using Lightroom Classic and Lightroom (cloud) together, and use them together every day. As powerful as that combo can be, there are some aspects that don’t flow as seamlessly between applications as I wish they would. One of those aspects is the difference between how Lightroom Classic organizes collections using collection sets, and how Lightroom (cloud) organizes albums using folders.

Instagram is building a product equity team and hiring a director of diversity and inclusion

Instagram announced some changes it’s making that are geared toward advancing equity within its workplace.

'This is fine': Ominous orange skies over California's Bay Area match Pantone 130U

PMS 130, taken on 9/9/20 by Adam Dexter Woke up this morning here in Alameda (San Francisco Bay Area) and it was still dark, with a strong orange coming through the blinds. I can best describe it as a "hellscape." It's caused, of course, by the wildfires. But, oddly enough, it doesn't smell like smoke (that's explained here). Though there is ash covering my vehicle and, really, everything outside. My Instagram feed today looks something like this: Fisherman's Wharf at 10 a.m. on 9/9/20 by Pa...
