It is very frisch this morning – a German word that means “fresh”. Sometimes used instead of cold…
It’s 20ºF or -7ºC. The sky is a clear, cold blue.

The exploding lock… not a bad idea. But won’t that push locks over the $100 mark?

SmartLock is a cable lock that has cores of compressed air and liquid running through its body. If cut, the liquids spray out over the perpetrator, his tools, the bike and the scene of the crime.

I remember seeing Jürgen Teller taking photographs at the Yohji Yamamoto show I took part in – 1991 in Paris. Always liked his photos. Here is a video interview with him for a Tate Modern photography exhibition.

The new Canon 5D Mark II is an amazing piece of gear. Greg Gorman was using one in September. At first I was baffled why one would want HD video on an SLR camera, but with newspapers moving online there is a higher demand for video and photo-journalists are being asked to provide vid-clips on top of photos. Greg did a demo where he shot video AND took photos – using the photo button freezes the video for maybe two seconds to capture the hi-res still. And check out this video from Tokyo which also highlights the 5D’s low-light capabilities: Tokyo Reality
Nice Japanese bags and backpacks:

The Benjamin Zander Pop!Cast: “How fascinating!” | The Pop!Tech Blog

I’m off to have breakfast with a really good bass-player.
