Some guy named Peter Hwang made the cover of my local paper. Kinda feel bad for him. Bet his mom is pissed, too.
IT'S ABOUT TIME. Now I can finally switch to Canon. RT @petapixel: Rumor - Canon to release 46MP pro DSLR next month:

In London? Was just blown away by (Pakistani) @LahoreOneRest on Commercial Rd. It's as close as you can get to Ravi's w/o flying to Dubai.
Just realized I had two tweets (one tweet and one RT) about typewriters this morning. Thus using up my quota for the century.
With his trusty typewriter Luke Winter (@petitprance) creates pay-what-U-wish custom stories on the Thames in London.
