Photography a Crime?
Photography a Crime?
If the Metropolitan Transit Authority has anything to say about it, New York City shutterbugs will no longer be able to snap away while riding either the subway system or the bus. For the second time in 2004, the camera ban, which applies to both still photography and video, has been brought back to the table by the MTA board. The public is given a 45-day period, starting from the proposal’s announcement on November 24 and ending January 10, 2005, to speak out regarding the possible ban. The following are the proposed amendments:
1050.9.c. No photograph, film or video recording shall be made or taken on or in any conveyance or facility by any person, except members of the press holding valid press identification cards issued by the New York City Police Department or by others duly authorized in writing to engage in such activity by the authority. All photographic activity must be conducted in accordance with the provisions of this Part.

Jark Arrested at Disneyland
News just in: I have received an email from jark's cellphone informing me that he has been arrested at Disneyland while taking a holiday with his family. It appears our beloved admin was told to 'get to the back of the line' after pushing in, and after refusing the request became abusive with security guards and nearyby onlookers.
The event took place at Disneyland in Tokyo, as Jark attempted to "cut the queue" on the illustrious "Goofy's Bounce House". Enticed by the rides features; "Kids can literally bounce off the walls and even the furniture for a jumping good time", Jark decided to take the devious option. Deftly jumping over the rails to skirt up to the front of the line, a nearyby employee of Disneyland noticed the offense and informed the "Jarkmeister" to get to the back of the queue. Frustrated that his devious tactic did not work, Jark decided to hold his ground and told the employee to "Kiss my white ass". A str

Take 30 Photos Per Second
The Boise, Idaho-based chipmaker has come up with an 8-megapixel silicon imager for compact cameras that will allow cameras to shoot 10 8-megapixel pictures a second or 30 2-megapixel shots a second. If camera makers adopt the chip, consumers will be able to capture those '60s-style photo montages made famous in "A Hard Day's Night.
The chip will also be capable of capturing video in the 720p format, which is the entry-level version of high definition.
Many current compact and even single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras do not provide this capability. Most cameras can take two to four shots a second at maximum resolution or 10 shots at lower resolution. Most also capture video at the 480-by-640 pixel resolution.
Over the past two years, however, digital cameras have been undergoing a quiet internal revolution. Traditionally, camera makers produced their own chips. The expense and time involved in developing these chips, however, has prompted them to turn to outfits like Texas Instruments, Nu

A Day in the Life
Really, there’s no need to introduce: Ryan (liquisoft) or at least I don’t think so. Ryan is an inspiration to any aspiring designer so we decided to ask him to tell us about his “day in the life” as a creative individual.  
The following takes place from 7:30am – 5:30pm. This is the “day in the life" of a creative.
7:30AM: Wake up, eat some breakfast, get dressed, head out the door by 8:15
8:30AM: Arrive at the agency. Check e-mail, browse a handful of websites, and get into "working mode." Jason turns on some music, which bugs me a bit but is infinitely more palatable than the barbershop music that was playing the week prior.
9:00AM: Begin working on the 3rd conce

Garth: "We fear change... "

Fellow deviants,
It's almost time! I don't know about you, but I'm anxious and excited. I've got that little bit of nervous :butterfly: and I'm ready!
Are you?
For you new deviants who don't know how things work around here; deviantART's birthday is August 7th, 2000. And we release new versions of the site each year on our birthday, with the exception of the years when we just don't. :O_o: But we are in fact releasing v5 on our birthday this year! :dance: There's a count-down counter on the front page within the "deviantART Loves You" box that you can watch.
Historically new versions have been met with some mild resentment due to attachment to the older version. We anticipate this, and refuse to believe it'll actually happen this tim

Special Announcement! Blocking And Hiding!
Special Announcement! Blocking And Hiding!
This just in! The hide comments feature that has been discussed along with the ability to block users form your page is now live and working!
Comment Hiding
On your own user page, if suzynasty comes around and says you are a poo poo head, you can now hide that comment. Look for a small “hide” link on  any comment box on your user page, journal or artwork. This will not work on comments you make on someone else’s user page.
We recommend you use this to settle your own minor issues. For small cases now you can remove offensive, or what you view to be offensive statements off your own page which leave CEA and helpdesk free to work with the community on larger issues.
If you feel someone is truly harassing or threatening you please report it in the normal manner.
User Blocking
If there is someone you really just don’t get along with, or for whatever reason you do not wish them t

United States

but mostly buzzing around the house on espresso
I saw you sitting on the front porch of that pretty house you sit at, and you looked like a sunset there against the grey sky, with your blue bright sparkling eyes. I dreamed we sat together there on the lawn at the world's end, hands linked forever beneath the decaying moss....apes to humans...ashes to to bone to dust.
