Back in November, one of my best friend’s wife was working with Branduin Creative to put on an event for Adobe.  She asked if I wanted to attend as the secondary photographer to get some extra experience shooting large events.  To give you an idea of how large it really was, the event took over […]

Welcome DISQUS to Korn on the Blog

I have FINALLY integrated DISQUS into this blog.  It took me awhile, I’ll admit that, but for good reasons. I first turned my head and started paying attention last year when DISQUS introduced version 2.0 which integrated syncing comments with the local WordPress database.  Then, most recently, DISQUS announced syncing of comments with FriendFeed and […]
