    It is worth noting that 'environment' doesn't = money.

    A kid from a poorer loving engaged household will be happier and more well adjusted than a wealthy kid whose parents don't spend any time...

    Ironically I've worked both with the actor who portrayed Mr. Wizard AND the guy who actually ran the experiments, an overweight bearded guy from the midwest with a passion for blackjack.

    Maybe you'd better reconsider the Canada move, or keep your destination to Vancouver or Victoria.

    He was exposed as what? A guy who can overcome his worst day as a QB, and come back and win anyway? Heh.

    I'm quite aware of the changes that have come out of tech change, and the 'business model' issues that still plague the industry. Heck, I live it, have lived it for 15 years now, in both freelance...

    Obviously I hope you're right, but I think even with the distractions, Belicheck will do a better job getting the Pats ready to play than Fox did last year.

    I watched NFL films video of the NFCCG last night. NFL films would be a great example of why you keep a staff of professionals.

    Should NFL films go to a model where they just hire a bunch of...

    Like anything else involving humans and the human brain, it's going to be quite complex and different for different people.

    Sure, if no-one lives in bad rat cage, then they're less likely to...

    Upon further reflection, I'm a bit more torn -- I can definitely see where things are just changing, and that change can be good. Technology HAS made lots of improvements including in the ways you...

    For a guy who pretends to be a cold-hearted cynic who only chases the dollar, you sure do get caught up in moral arguments a lot.

    The NFL is the guy you say you want to be.

    Yep, I don't think they thought it through very well. If they wanted the 'caught red-handed' deal, then just wait till an early season game next year and do it then.

    Any number of external hardware/software combos exist. We record phone calls all the time in TV, but you have to pony up for the equipment.

    If you're doing hundreds of interviews a year, sounds...

    A digital recorder and speakerphone button?

    In some jurisdictions in the US btw, you are legally obligated to ask the person you're talking to if it's okay that you're recording the call.

    No, someone will get paid to feed the beast. They'll just be less qualified, more stupid people, who do it for less, and thus do it more half-*ssed.

    But aren't you assuming that everyone else out there is interested/motivated to take part in that spirited discussion?

    Journalism didn't preclude those discussions from taking place...

    There's a quality ----------> speed fulcrum point in any job. In my personal experience, it shades highly towards speed in a freelance environment. They get the 'best' quality I can give them for a...

    There's simply less photographers.

    Plus freelance guys are there for a volume of shots, not necessarily that one great shot, that a staff photographer would have the leeway to try for.

    I don't even care so much from a 'omg, what will those guys do!?' point of view, just from a 'declining quality of media' pov.

    But that's just it, why does Getty need any more photographers? It's not like there's some zero sum of photographers needed. Heck, just have reporters point their 12 megapixel I phones at the...

    If I'm being fair, they couched it as 'love.' My saying that that's 'goddidit' is of course, my interpretation.

    Not sure how it's accurate in the science, since it's essentially 'goddidit' wrapped up in some jargon.

    So it's lowest common denominator strikes again. Kind of what I thought.

    Next we can all bemoan the failing economy and lack of anything but McJobs.
