I mostly do Erlang and CoffeeScript these days and am the author of "Building Web Applications in Erlang" and "Programming HTML5 Applications" Both of which were published by O'Reilly.

I am also very interested in the question, How do I become a great developer and spend a fair bit of time thinking about it.

I am also a compulsive writer. I love writing as it forces me to really think about what is important and how to make ideas seem more concreate

comment Is it safe to carry around a tripod with a DSLR attached to the head?
I have done this before with my Bogen 3063 and a 4x5 View Camera. Yes everything was locked down real tight, but there was not any problem

if you really want to understand it in great depth read "The Print" by Ansel Adams, one of the masters of the art teaching it.

comment How does the human eye compare to modern cameras and lenses?
Its not so much that the outer eye is underperforming, its that its doing a different job. The center of the field of view is where we have fine vision, while the outer eye is better for things like low light situations.
