The Crowd at the Lost Ballroom

The Crowd at the Lost Ballroom, originally uploaded by Anthony Topper.

I took this picture with a video camcorder, a Sony DCR-SR100. I had forgotten the compact flash card for my Canon Digital SLR. I was using the “Nightshot” mode, which makes the photo super grainy. I used filtering to blur away some of the graininess with Picasa.

I liked the composition among other things.

The Internet is getting slower

Google.com has it right; their pages come up quickly.  Many of today’s popular sites are sub par.  Facebook and MySpace are two prime examples.  Even Apple.com takes 3 to 5 seconds to bring up a page.  This is too long.

Is it irresponsible design?  Is it poor system administrators?  Is it company executives pushing for the wrong thing?
