DBD 7.6.12 Now she want a photo


Hope you had an awesome Independence Day filled with friends and fireworks and sunshine and all that good stuff.

For you ex-pats, hope you had a fun localised celebration.

I honestly debated doing a write-up on the fiftieth anniversary of Algeria's independence from France, but I realised I'm too hungover not well-versed enough in the topic to do a full write-up. But there will be something in the links, oh yes there will!

So instead, you got this DBD.

Watched the fireworks at Pier 39 last night. And they were nice (though strangely unimpressive relative to the 75th Anniversary fireworks from the Golden Gate Bridge). But I noticed... as the fireworks were going off, there were so many people on their phones taking photos of the fireworks. And if you go to a concert now, you'll see everyone has their phones in the air, video taping the concert... for what exactly? To share online? To watch later?

And that brings me to today's topic. Is the readiness and availability of cameras and videos today perhaps preventing us from enjoying things in the moment?
