Pre-pandemic

I just got a magic keyboard for my iPad and wanted to give LumaFusion a good try. It’s pretty capable and the keyboard made things better. I’d really love some better audio editing tools though. All in all I had a fun afternoon looking back at clips from the last few years.

Auto-Panorama

I’ve been playing with making panoramas from moving vehicles (“auto” panoramas get it) – using the motion of the vehicle to make the image rather than rotating my phone. The results are often really distorted. Occasionally, the effect is subtle. I really like these from a bus ride through Vancouver.

It’s been a while since I last posted and even though I’m the only one who reads this I feel the need to account for the 5+ months. It’s mainly been work with some cool travel interspersed. So here are some highlights.

March 30th was my 9yr anniversary at Mozilla. I’ve been working on all things related to search for the last 16 months. Nothing much has been released in Firefox yet but we just spent our All Hands week in Whistler planning out all the cool stuff we’re going to build the second half of this year. Also, I got to make these cool videos for the plenary. It was so much fun.

Over the spring I got to visit some pretty beautiful places. First we visited the Grand Canyon. I hiked all the way down and back up in one day with some friends. It was amazing. Then we went to Zion. It looks like some kind of fantasy Leonardo da Vinci landscape. Also amazing. Then it was another trip to Big Bend were we did the South Rim trail and then gazed at stars. Finally, we spent our anniversary and my birthday in Maui. More amazing.
