    I've got to say, I dislike the audio blog. If it was musical or on location or the audio actually contributed anyuthing, then great. But it's not. It's just text. The novelty wears off after the first two minutes, and now it's not searchable, there's no RSS feed, you can't read at your own pace, phone interuptions are deadly, etc etc etc. It's bad enough there are no pictures.....

    I agree with bjorke. It is one thing to read his opinion, another to listen to it as if they were the words from the Oracle being passed down to the masses. I like LensWork, I like Jensen, but the blog is like a digital camera, fun to play with the first few minutes, then is back to the drawer.

    They have been doing something like the audio blog for a while on their web site. They are mostly interviews with photo artists and they also sell the CD's.

    I for one liked the audio blog for the simple reason that I could multitask. I listened to it while I was working on other things.

    Well, thanks -- I think.
    I have to admit the "controversy" about the audio aspect of my blog is surprising to me. All I wanted to do was to have a way to share some ideas that don't fit our magazine format and that folks might be interested in. By offering it for free on the web, I figured it could be a lot of fun and maybe spark some interesting discussions. For me, it's just a lot easier to do an audio than to type because I am such a bad typist and it takes me so long.
    Oracle? LOL! I guess this is one of the risks of being a publisher -- you get mistaken as some kind of authority. Like all of you, I have my own opinions, but trust me folks, an oracle I ain't. It is funny though!
    I do believe strongly in the free market. If LensWork or our DVDs or my free blog are to your liking, great! If not, there are some really great alternatives out there.
    And personally, I think it would be very interesting if a bunch of other photographers would start their own blogs. I know I'd be a regular visitor! In most of the blogs I see the "diary" aspect of them is very boring. I just thought in might be a better use of the technology to offer some random thoughts about a topic I thought I could speak about that folks might be interested in. If you enjoy it, I'm glad you find it useful and/or entertaining.

    The new version of APUG (which is on the way) will have a built in blog system. Basically gives each user access to their own journal, then they can decide if the want to make it public or not. Could be interesting if it's popular.

    -And welcome to the site
