iPad: The Latest Gadget/ Kevin Honeycutt: The Ultimate Geekster

OK, so Kevin, one of the educational technology specialists in our office got an iPad. When I was naming this entry I wanted to call Kevin a geekoid, but when looking up that word, it was defined as a person that was socially inept......Kevin is far from socially inept so, I chose the word geekster. I couldn't really find a definition for geekster.....but in LoriLand that is a word, and if there was a picture of it in the dictionary, it would be Kevin Honeycutt.

Now I frequently take pictures of our people doing their podcasts so they have stills to use and today I took pics of him and his iPad while he was filming an episode for our parent resource site, My Kids Turn. He has posted them for people to use in presentations on and on Flickr. You can see the podcast episode, Raising Digital Kids: iPad- The Latest Gadget,  for Raising Digital Kids that he made for, it is also on you tube.

Before the filming started, we were goofing around with lighting,  I'd like to do new staff pictures with some black and whites so I used Jerry Butler, one of our tech gods, as my model. Afterwards I used the Topaz filter (have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE, LOVE that filter?) and I smile every time I look at it. We voted and can't decide if he looks like a poet or a serial killer..... anyway I will share that also.

More of the ipad photos can be seen on my flickr page.
