Do you bluetooth? Or a little fragment about walk by postings onto digital surfaces, with a Palm and Bluetooth and what else is going on?

M recently got himself a bluetooth mouse. I recently was given a pda that can bluetooth. Waiting for the elevator the other day, I checked if there were any other Bluetooth users in the neighborhood, I discovered M’s mac and sent him a photograph. (Just casually.)
He liked the idea of photographs arriving on his desktop out of thin air. (M is a guy who likes to work on projects that are somehow innovative in nature, I would say.) He came up with the idea that there could be a folder on his harddrive that would refresh his desktop every few minutes or so and that the images in the folder would be photographs, or whatever it might be, that I feel would be nice to have as a desktop. He just leaves the folder open for me now, and whenever I walk by his office, if he is there or not, I just drop in a picture or two, through the air, invisibly, just like that. Finally some good use for that bluetooth stuff. (I already began to feel like the man with the first fax machine at times. Whom could I possibly fax? Should I maybe just create a loop of black paper and let the machine copy until it goes up in flames?)
I started spreading some of my pictures onto cellphones in phone stores, just for “fun”… I use bluetooth to sync my palm… (sorta lame, no?)
I do not have a cellphone. This might be part of the whole issue here.
Please do not feel sorry for me. I do not really need a cellphone…

How sad have some of the entries become… not so long ago, there would be joyful compact posts here, praising the sunrise… now there are little stories of office adventures… i feel dilbertified. Not so long ago there used to be daily drawings here… now some of the entries almost make me cry, onto the same page, offline, online… efficiently.

The plants are doing okay, at least. I will probably have to setup an alarm on my handheld device, preferably a vibrating one, reminding me to water the smart, though brainless green friends… at least every friday… what should be the time? Should it be a “whole day event?”.

Do you bluetooth?



I must be behind with the times, this bluetooth thing is new to me.. ..but google it, I shall.

Right, just as I suspected.. a wireless thingo.. as your narrative suggested.. brilliant.

Funny about the first fax machine.. heh.

i like the idea of your images showing up on a showroom full of cell phones! subversive art!!

Standing in awe of your photographs - envious of the shear saturation of colour you manage to achieve. My favourite of yours you shot a long time ago now, of a reflection in a shop window - it was the most beautiful photograph I've ever seen.
