reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.

Oakville Divers  Scuba shop

Scuba Diving Gear Shop Oakville Divers I have a Dive shop Oakville Divers and Boat called ‘Orkney Isle’. We are looking for people who are certified and don’t have anyone to go Scuba Diving with.
What I do is sharpen your training and skills to dive in Fresh water. I also do certification upgrades and freshwater orientation dives for people who have only dove or been certified in the Caribbean….

There is a big learning curve between warm Caribbean waters and diving in Ontario. That’s where I can help and make it easy.

Then I build dive teams of divers who have similar skill sets and experience and we arrange dives around the great lakes. This way our dive teams from Oakville Divers get their own boat and dive with people they know and have dove with before.

I run a well organized diving operation here at Oakville Divers and I am second generation instructor and diver. What I can teach you just by going on a dive with me will make you relax and start enjoying the dives and having fun faster.

We also have a large group of divers who like to meet new people make friends and just go diving with no pressure.

We have every level of diver from very basic to advanced, tech ,deep, rebreather, instructor and they don’t have anything to prove and know ego’s.

So if you are a diver who wants to have fun ,be safe , meet new people to dive with ,go on more dives …….

dust off those flippers

cheers Rob

Day 185/365 – “Begins with C”

Day 185/365 -

Found an interesting pattern on my dusty computer. It’s always worth it to look closer to things that surround us. 🙂

Beacon Theater – Hopewell,VA

Beacon Theater -  Hopewell,VA

Welcome to the Beacon Theater. Built by the Knights of Pythias (a fraternal order that promotes peace around the globe) in 1926 but Non operational since the early 70’s. The top floor though has been renovated for conferences, etc. I want to apologize for the lack of quality in these photos. I was shooting with the camera that I dropped and the viewfinder and lcd screen are both busted up so I didn’t really know what I captured until I got it home on the computer. Also,I was working in conditions that were the most filthy yet. If I barely moved I would kick up tons of dust. I had no source of real light to see by as only the hall lights leading into the theater worked. I relied on my camera phone light to see in most instances.(I never claimed to be good at what I do. I just enjoy what I do). I had a blast though. What with hearing organ music playing when I was in a building completely locked up (no organ was in the building by the way)and a door opening and slamming shut. I had quite a time.
