Starting in February of 2009, I started posting in my other blog, The Last Word, a newly-created category called “The Bleeding Edge.” The entries were about my struggles with the computer technology involved with digital photography, and some computer technology that was highly incidental to photography. It became my most popular category, although it’s not clear that my audience is made up of photographers. Back in the 70s and early 80s, I used to enjoy Jerry Pournelle’s column in Byte Magazine, and The Bleeding Edge was my way of carrying on the thread. I realize that many photographers aren’t interested in computer and network minutia, and in April of 2012, I decided to split the old blog into two pieces.
All new Bleeding Edge posts will be made here, not on The Last Word, sparing the people who care mostly about photography the nuts and bolts of my technological struggles.
