Another doctoral residency in the books. Exhausted but uplifting.

There is something lovely about a 4x5 negative in an enlarger. Time to mix some Dektol.

My revised SX-70 flash sync prototypes are off at the PCB fab and making steady progress.

Things you find—again—while cleaning darkroom: 60-ish year old exposed film. In this case, Ilford Selochrome on a 620 spool. I suppose I can dev it today...

When the FCC repealed net neutrality, Californians took steps to safeguard their internet access themselves and passed a gold standard for state net neutrality, S.B. 822. The major ISPs challenged the law and lost today in court.

Prototype boards arrived my newly designed Polaroid SX-70 flash adapter. Few changes to make before I make a production run and drop the open source files, but overall I'm digging it.

Picking up darkroom stuff, I always look for a story. In the bottom of one box, faded notebook paper with settings for a color print of Dad.

I didn't need another enlarger, but free? I'll chalk it up to a landfill save.

Prepping for IRB this spring, finished my CREC researcher' training in the protection of human subjects in research.

Low light, stack of books, and tired eyes as doctoral residency day three kicks off.

A foggy drive this morning but a lovely classified find about to be put into service in the darkroom: a Summitek 11x14 Cascade Print & Sheet Film Washer. Originally designed by Stephen Peterson, Ph.D. who stopped producing them as digital overtook film and sales plummeted.

Discovered kids are starting to play "We don't talk about Bruno" from Encanto on the piano. Inevitable; the soundtrack has been on loop for a month.

Four pages of literature review revised, went for walk, realized the lit stream just isn't conceptually clicking. Cut, snip, chop.

Remembering Aaron Swartz, who died on this day, a victim of the copyright system

By @glynmoody

Aaron's face gets thrown around the internet to prop up campaigns and etc, but it's important to remember that Aaron was an activist for digital rights, and was bullied into suicide by a system that wanted to punish him for his activism. He was also a human being with friends and family who loved him dearly.

Pondering grounded theory reading, developing a couple rolls of 120 from the Zeiss Ikon folder.

I don't need another SX-70 flash adapter, but I did feel like designing one in EAGLE. Rapid bench test of my optocoupler rev before sending smt circuit board out for printing.

Been a long time since I've found myself in EAGLE cracking on a board design. Not quite like riding a bike, but tiny sense of joy I remember how to make part libraries for long forgotten things. 🤣
