Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858

Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - Poppa Large
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - Poppa Large
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag
this is so romantic - τorƍue
awesome, you just needed a gun and it would make a cool REAL-time FPS :) - Emil Kirichev
oh thanks you soo much!!! I love it! - Bojan Babic
surprisingly un-shaky - Sally Relton Shakespeare
Avg. speed: 9.48 km/h (9.23 mi in 94 min, see red track http://maps.google.com/maps...) - Jérôme
Paul had the initial idea for Google Glass exactly two years before Google launched Glass. :) - Space Cowboy
Now, if only he had thought of Gmail. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I hope this isn't the start of a "people walk around cities w/smartphones taped to their hats" trend. - rönin
I hope it is - Mo Kargas
If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)
Iphone taped to the forehead, what a nice way to show #IamAmerican abroad :) - непростые коротышки
first laugh of the day, ty a.t. - chaz2b
LOL, Google Glass back in the days. Monsieur: Martini? Great stuff as I was doing myself a lot of these then too... 9) - Zu from AOD

So my math-major kid invited me to go to a college football game with him. WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY SON?
I did not discover the joy of college football until after I graduated. - Brian Johns
Same here. My football watching didn't start until after I was out of school. - Eric - Poppa Large

Today was a great day y'all. Played my first bike polo game and scored a goal even though I don't have control of the bike or the mallet yet. Then an awesome lady friend took me to dinner and offered me the spare room in her house by saying 'you're not going to need it, but if you do it's yours'. I continue to be humbled by the care and concern...
people have shown me. It is truly affirming. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Cops: Meth suspects threw toilet at imagined attackers | News - Home
"Three people in Florida were so high on meth that police say they imagined their home was under attack, tossing a toilet and bathroom sink out the window at imaginary "intruders." Jackson County sheriff's deputies also found numerous windows shot out and multiple holes in the walls. They were called to the home by reports of suspicious noises and cries for help, the Dothan Eagle reported." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
You know, as you do. - Jennifer Dittrich
As you do in Florida, apparently. - Jessie
As if it wasnt bad enough that everyone thinks those of us that live in FL are stupid, now they all think we're meth heads too ... nice going doofuses! - Shannon - GlassMistress

How did 21 year old me not appreciate Vitalogy? "Corduroy," "Nothingman," "Better Man," "Immortality" ... so good.
Even "Spin the Black Circle" and "Not For You" are good... most of the album is good. I think I actually threw the CD out of the window of a moving car, it annoyed me so much. I was so hung up on 10 and Vs., I guess... - Bren
silly 21 year old Bren. - holly #ravingfangirl
Right? - Bren
Top to bottom, both 10 and Vs. are better albums, though. ;) - Bren
You're not alone. I hated it when I first heard it. - Jenny H.
Credit where it's due: my brother, who was 14 or 15 when Vitalogy came out, loved it right from the moment he got it. - Bren
My friend, Dan, is a rabid PJ fan. He got so angry with my when I told him that I didn't like Vitalogy. He made me listen to it again when we were driving out to the field one day. I told him that I changed my mind. :) - Jenny H.
I dated a guy in high school who was obsessed with PJ. I couldn't stand most of their stuff. I'd call Eddie "Marble Mouth" because all the stuff the guy played for me sounded like Eddie was singing with a mouth full of marbles. I almost want to track the guy down and tell him I love PJ now. Almost, but not really. - Kristin
Back off people Eddie is mine I called dibs first time I heard him when they still called themselves Mookie Blaylock. It's a forever thing. But yeah it was especially poignant at 21 for me it's just happened to stay that way. :) - Steve C Team Marina

Out did myself in the cooking department tonight. Homemade rissoles, parmesan potatoes, and seasoned baked zucchini. #burp #fb
Hope my family don't expect me to cook like that every night... - Melly - #TeamMarina
Now what is a 'rissole' in your parts? There are several definitions over here ;-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
Somewhere in between a hamburger patty and a meatball! Usually something along the lines of minced beef, egg, breadcrumbs, seasoning, and maybe some finely diced veggies, shaped into balls then flattened slightly. - Melly - #TeamMarina

The Truth About DevOps: "IT Isn't Dead; It's Not Even Dying" - ReadWrite
"With the rise of the modern developer, traditional IT operations is dead, right?  Not even close, says Puppet Labs founder Luke Kanies. And he should know. Puppet is one of the technologies at the heart of the DevOps phenomenon, a merger of traditional IT and app development in which developers take on more responsibility for running the infrastructure that hosts their apps—in part, by automating it." - Me from Bookmarklet
I shudder at the thought of letting my developers run ops. Shudder. - Eric - Poppa Large from iPhone

Today I'm hosting a Chef Summit at work (yes, the config-mgmt kind, not the food kind). Expecting 250 attendees, with catered food and door prizes. I managed to line up the Chef CTO as the keynote. Going to be crazy awesome!!! You should be jealous.
*jealous* - imabonehead
I was amazed that I was able to get the Chef CTO lined up. He's basically giving the keynote he did at ChefConf 2013. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it. - Kevin Johnson
So the videos will eventually be posted publicly? - imabonehead
Unlikely for this event (but I'll be asking), but the ConfConf 2013 keynote is on youtube. - Kevin Johnson

The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit
"For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine. Unseen and unknown, he lived in secret, creeping into homes in the dead of night and surviving on what he could steal. To the spooked locals, he became a legend—or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Good story if you have some time - Steve C Team Marina
"Knight's arrest, rather than eliminating disbelief, only enhanced it. The truth was stranger than the myth. One man had actually lived in the woods of Maine for twenty-seven years, in an unheated nylon tent. Winters in Maine are long and intensely cold: a wet, windy cold, the worst kind of cold. A week of winter camping is an impressive achievement. An entire season is practically... more... - Steve C Team Marina

Producer in Beverly Hills for Emmy Pre-Party Mistaken for Bank Robber, Held 6 Hours | KTLA
"A film producer who was in Beverly Hills to attend a pre-Emmy party Friday night was handcuffed and detained for about six hours before authorities investigating a nearby bank robbery realized they had the wrong man. Charles Belk, who was handcuffed after mistakenly being taken for a bank robber, is seen in this photo posted to Facebook. Charles Belk stated on Facebook that he left a restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard and was walking alone to his car parked on La Cienega Boulevard at about 5:20 p.m. to check the parking meter when he was suddenly surrounded by police and told to sit on the curb. A picture posted with the statement on Facebook showed Belk, who is credited as a producer and actor on his IMDb page, in handcuffs as he sat on the sidewalk with two officers nearby. “I get that the Beverly Hills Police Department didn’t know that I was a well educated American citizen that had received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, an MBA from... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
