Does anyone use Lightroom or know any professionals that use Lightroom?
For photographers, such as photojournalists and documentary photographers who need to organize and sort hundreds of images, Lightroom could be the next great thing. Not to mention the fact that photojournalists should not be manipulating their images beyond what can be done in RAW adjustments.

If you're thinking about buying a new Mac Pro with more than 8GB of RAM, you might want to reconsider, because Photoshop CS3 can only use 4GB of RAM.
Unless you're doing high end video production (with 64-bit apps), then it's essentially useless to buy a Mac with more than 8GB of RAM, because it can't be used.
A 64-Bit version of Photoshop which will be able to use massive amounts of RAM, is still several years away because Apple has stopped development of the 64-Bit codebase which will allow Adobe and other software companies to release 64-bit version of their software.
Sadly, Photoshop CS4 for Windows will be 64-bit, allowing Windows Vista users to feed Photoshop as much RAM as they need.
There's a rumored workaround for Photoshop's RAM limit. If anyone tries this out, please spread the word. It's worth a shot if you work with massive files, such as 4x5 or 8x10 scans, or composites.

It seems like a potentially awesome means of communication, but it would require some effort from those involved. The most promising use that I've heard of, and what I would really like to see happen in the photo realm, is a public instant messenging forum. We all use our phones to send/receive text messages; why not have roaming discussions with several people at a time whenever a thought pops into our heads?
Does anyone here use it? Would anyone be interested in expanding our little blog community into the micro-blogosphere? How practical is this sort of thing, really? Is it just another trend, doomed to die a horrible death, or is there some value in the technology?

The second is a portrait of my friends Annie and AJ from Billings.
Last week we went to the Getty and saw an exhibit with August Sander and Bernd and Hilla Becher. It was incredible! Sander's portraits are absolutely beautiful in person. I could have gotten lost in that exhibit for hours!
I'll keep you all updated on our adventures in househunting!
