Odds and Ends

Julia and I both enjoy medical history, and we have a few old medical books. They are really neat to read, and by current standards have some ideas that can only be described as odd. The following is taken from a book called First Aid to the Injured, published in 1928. The book belonged to Julia's grandmother who was a nurse. The picture demonstrates how to do artificial respiration. Don't try this at home. Seriously, don't try this at home, it won't work.







After weeks of considering buying a new camera, I finally took the plunge. The Canon Powershot G7 will give me some of the flexibility of a digital SLR without committing me to buying multiple lenses and equipment. It's also small enough to carry around, but takes great pictures! It's a 10 megapixel camera, so I'll apologize in advance for the increased picture size on the blog.





I joined another site called Facebook today. Facebook is a social networking website based around user generated content and connections. I am not too sure what being a Facebook member will do for me, but I joined anyways. My brother-in-law Jonathan is doing a Masters degree around how people interact socially on computer networks, it's very interesting stuff. Based on talking with him, I now believe the reason I don't fully understand Facebook is because I'm old!
Computer savvy and old is a weird concept, because computers are a new thing, right? Wrong! If you think computers are new, you are old too. For young people computers just are. If you are young, computers are just like cars, part of the landscape it is impossible to imagine being without. When it comes to computers old people like me would still be able to get a DOS machine working, probably remember how infuriating the trackballs on the ICON computer were, and probably typed in the html code for all of the links and text formatting in your last post because it was faster for you than clicking the buttons...
Anyways, old or not, if you have a Facebook account link to my Facebook profile!

ahhh Facebook, the great waster of time. You will be face stalking people in no time at all :P (ie going through all the pictures, going through their friends list, going through their friends pictures, repeat).

Also I almost have a survey ready to go about to privacy and trust issues related the mini-feed and news feed features of Facebook. Hopefully you and Julia can can be participants. It should be interesting, it takes off where two older research projects left off (one from MIT and one from carnegie mellon). I don't know how a lowly Guelph student can hope to compete with such peers but why not try anyways :p

Nice camera btw.

Like you predicted, Facebook has already taken up a good part of my morning. It's really interesting to see how people are linked! My question is this: Is Kevin Bacon on Facebook, and how many degrees of seperation are between him and I?

Send us the survey when it is ready and I will be happy to fill it out!
