#daveo50 ~ 2008 / waiting for Seabus, Vancouver, BC, Canada / photo by Jer Crowle

Project: Upon turning 50 years old on August 16, 2020, Dave Olson (me, hello) is posting a photo (or maybe photos) a day / per year – starting with 1970 with intent of chronicling existence through various primary evidence sourced from studio portraits, class photos, ID / passport photos, or occasionally other “casual/group/random” shots when the above don’t exist in my archive (note: not “artificial intelligence,” really me, pulled from shoeboxes, journals, wallets and whatnot – diligently scanned and dated via glasses and haircuts, lightly annotated).

Vancouver Photographer Kris Krug @kk has a new website

My frequent collaborator and co-conspirator on many adventures Kris Krug has a new website. KK is a Vancouver-area based  photographer (he lives on idyllic Galiano Island) with creds ranging from conferences to rare bird docs on remote islands to sojourns in distant countries spreading goodness.

A friend will bail you out of prison. A good friend will be sitting next to you saying "damn that was fun!".
Kris Krug and Uncle Weed post-swim at Bob Marley’s swimming hole in Little bay, Jamaica

We’ve done many projects together over the years including Frederick Varley Vancouver-address photo essay, trip to Jamaica, several SXSW and Gnomedex geekfests and all sorts of goofing around in unusual circumstances. 

Kris Krug’s Flickr archive is majestic and his new website is a replacement for his previous iterations which were hijacked via an SMS hack in 2018. So frustrating and a reminder to solid up your security (including SSL) and ensure you are working with a reliable host and domain registration provider (i use Laughing Squid and Gandi for the record). 

Dave Olson's 40th Birthday - @uncleweed
Kris Krug + Dave Olson’s at @uncleweed’s 40th Birthday #UW40

There are many posts in this archive under the Kris Krug tag as well including lots of Olympic social documentation stuff around the True North Media House project, TEDx events at which we were the “official” documentation squad, longboard hockey for Heads Magazine and a panel about Rock n Roll photography with legend bev. davies. 

Included are photos of us for the record.

Dave Olson of HootSuite on Twitter Analytics and SXSW

Lockergnome’s Kelly Clay talks to Dave Olson of HootSuite at the Source Code pre-premiere party. Dave shares insights into the newly announced analytics built in to HootSuite, shares insight into the ability for people to communicate from Egypt during the recent Internet blocking that occurred there, and about how things like Twitter make it easier to make sure your loved ones are okay.

Talks and Ideas (while waiting for a Key) at Gnomedex06 #2

Unabonger who describes my video artifact thusly:

“Uncleweed guards the stash, and leaves a video diary entry on my recorder while i go back to the garage to get the room key I forgot.”

While waiting for a new key from security, I recap Day 2 of Gnomedex including riffs on:

* Ethan Kaplan (then of Warner Brothers) ideas about the fan and band hierarchy
* Tara Hunt (born in Saskatoon) sharing her ideas about small and social business (note: Chris Messina was not her husband as i stated)
* Dave Winer who got grumpy about the dude from Firefox but laid out his future vision
* Chris Pirillo asking for feedback about his new idea TagJag
* Experience Music Project with an exhibit comparing and contrasting art from different eras
* Singing Oh Canada with the other Canucks on site (Darren Barefoot, Derek K. Miller et al)
