I have a new camera. It's an Olympus E-510 DSLR. I'm still playing with it to learn its features but so far not bad.
I posted a photo of snow in SFU in my flickr account this morning. Right after that I got a message, which seemed like an automatic one, from a news site named Now Public. They asked for my permission for using that photo for a news story about yesterday's SFU closure due to snow.
The idea of having a news site where reporters are Internet users, is a nice idea. It may be the future of automatic news sites like Google news.
Last week I went to Beijing, China for IROS 2006 conference. I took a whole bunch of photos, more than 800s. But there is only a few good ones in there. I started posting some of them to my flickr page. Check them out.
That's how my place looks like. It is in an on-campus residency named Hamilton Hall.

I didn't know that it is possible to see auroras here in Vancouver. I was reading yesterday's Slashdot story on Space Weather warning on solar flares hit the earth on last Friday. There in the galleries I saw a couple of photos from Canada and when I googled it I found Astronomical Society of Canada /
Vancouver Centre and aurora photos taken from Langley, BC which is near here. I should search more to see if it is possible to see auroras with unaided eyes or not.
Update: OK! Here it is,
- Photos of aurora from Burnaby moutain park
- Me in Burnaby mountain park, a 5 minute walk from here!

Update: I was standing here when taking this photo
