First Day of School 2007

Originally uploaded by gcrgcr
Today was quite a milestone for this Bartel family. All three kiddos - AJ, Max and Jesse are now in Elementary school. Fourth grade, third grade, and Kindergarten respectively. Wow. Time flies when you are having fun.

It is hard to believe I took 46 photos in about 20 minutes time, but for such an event - I suppose that is reasonable.

So enjoy the photos. The full set is here, and try the Slideshow.

Otherwise, as a slowly-becoming-a-not-necessarily-new Flickr user I continue to experiment more with the service.

I've uploaded this mornings photos as a set to my Flickr account. I'm actually posting this blog entry, to my blog, right out of the Flickr interface - not using my blog tools, but Flickr's.

The fact that I can do this is very, very slick. I'm not overly impressed with the coding however - so I made some very minor tweaks to the resulting post.

Still, Flickr seems to think of the right feature sets that users want- and when they do something - as with the conversion I went through - it seems to work, really, really well.

There seems to be more for me to experiment with, so I'll post further updates (and photos!).

PowerPoint Rule

I've always been intimidated by PowerPoint. I'm just not good at organizing my thoughts and information in this particular medium. It is a bit frustrating. Fortunately I don't have to craft PowerPoint presentations often. When I do, I'm sure to ask peers to review ahead of time.

I came across this Guy Kawasaki blip on YouTube detailing his 10-20-30 rule for PowerPoint Presentations. He's addressing a specific circumstance - entrepreneurs pitching their business plans to Venture Capitalists - but the rule seems relevant generally as well.

See what you think...
