Sticker Citation

May 28th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · 3 Comments · Miscellaneous

In Apple’s Stickiest Marketing Ploy, Wired News reports on the longstanding obsession Mac fans have with Apple logo stickers. As I started to read it, I started to feel bad for finally taking my Apple sticker off the back of my van a couple of months ago (replacing it with my own cheesy marketing). Ten […]

Blair Watch Hawaii

May 23rd, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Got an e-mail from Kim via Donica pointing out a recent “Talk About Ethics” column by Bob Steele at Poynteronline. Entitled The Faces in the Picture, it was yet another essay on the Jayson Blair scandal. But this one had an unusual local connection. The article used as its centerpiece a photo taken years ago […]

Three Minutes

May 22nd, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

After getting some tech advice from a couple of friends, I was able to encode and post online a RealVideo clip of the Channel 2 News (KHON) story on geocaching. I’m the dorky guy with the bag, attempting to climb the mountain with slippers. I snared the video with a TV card and basic editing […]

Class Welfare

A condemnation of the Bush tax cut plan from unexpected source: “Putting $1,000 in the pockets of 310,000 families with urgent needs is going to provide far more stimulus to the economy than putting the same $310 million in my pockets.” Who wrote that? Well, he’s on this list, for starters.

The Matrix: Unmuddled

May 19th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Confused? This essay by Ken Mondschein might help. (Don’t read it until you’ve seen it, though — it’s spoiler-riffic.)

Cap Haps

Nifty. Grabbed a Coke with my SushiMan lunch, and won a free hat. Since Katie’s the NASCAR fan, I had Coke mail it to her.

More Photo Fun

May 12th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Maybe my my modest contribution to the May Day Project was just an appetizer. Someone in the Olympus C2100UZ user group I just joined posted a link to the America 24/7 project. Spearheaded by A Day in the Life of America editors Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen, it’s an all-digital, week-long nationwide photo call […]

Smiles from Afar

May 12th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Hot off the overworked Wal-Mart photo studio ink-jet printer, proofs of a set of portraits Jen and the kids took this morning in Daytona Beach. Note Katie’s toothless grin, and Zac’s ever-increasing cuteness (and size!). Eight days, 49 minutes, and two seconds to go…

Day in the Life

May 10th, 2003 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Okay, I’ll bite. I’ll probably be as successful at this as I was at NaNoWriMo, but, who cares. Photo memes are fun. Since I’ll be spending most of the day out and about, almost all of my May Day Project Photos will be posted at the end of the day. And since I’m in Hawai`i, […]
