A penguin and a polar bear are sitting on an iceberg. The penguin yells, "No Soap Radio!" They both jump in the water.

Blogging the conference Day #1

6:40 AM, Raleigh-Durham International.

Calm as Hindu cows.

But with a view like that who wouldn't be.

Weird twisting cloud formation. Possibly a devastating tornado somewhere in Kentucky.

Chicago was covered in snow. We all regretted not having time to go outside and play.

Gray and freezing on the ground, but a mile above Chicago it's nothing but billowing heaven.

Riding public transportation.

That's right, public transportation. Contrary to what you might have heard in North Carolina, it actually does exist. In Portland at least.

The symbol for the Oregon lottery is literally a hand crossing its fingers.

Portland got some big ol' buildins.

The world's first high-tension power line was strung up between Portland and Millamette Falls on June 3, 1889. The historical marker for this was placed on a large rock, for some reason.

Great pictures. What sort of camera are you using?

Chris: No, the changes we're making when we get back will make you happy.

Joe: A Kodak EasyShare C330. I'm not too thrilled with the quality, but it's good enough. What's more annoying is the pause between pressing the button and the picture actually being taken. There's no way to change shutter speed, so blurring is a problem. I want to invest in a nice one in the next few months, partially because the title "freelance photo-journalist" has a nice ring to it.

OMG you lucky sonsof $&#*%*#...

I have a Kodak EasyShare, not sure what model, but probably older than yours. It definitely has the same annoying delay problem. I guess it's just a fault of the EasyShare line in general.

the Oregon lottery symbol is the same as the British Lottery logo but with the colors inverted. Wonder who ripped off who's copyright.
