You are at the home page for aDeepBlue, an internet software development shop based in Memphis, TN. We specialize in custom built software projects, designing solutions with your problem in mind.
We are really glad you are here.
So, you may be asking yourself, "What kind of things can I find on aDeepBlue.com"? Well a little bit of everything. If you are an Adobe developer, you will find information about ColdFusion and Flex. You might like my pictures. You might see some design work that I find interesting, or just a link I came across that I want to share. Whatever it is, you can rest assured it is most likely nerdy and hopefully interesting.
And then once you are done thinking to yourself how crazy this really is, realize that this is basically an add for fashion week. Apparently Adam Kimmel the designer of the suits had this done. I would rather watch this than some anorexic model walk down a runway, but still, this is what you call taking it to the next level. Check out this topo map of the route they took. They had to be doing at least 60mph easy. Anyone good with math and timing like that enough to figure it out for sure?
So, who wants to help me make a video like this?;)
Everyone that has ever seen me shoot pictures always comments on how many pictures I take and how few pictures I actually end up with. With digital photography today, you can shoot hundreds, even thousands of images an hour without really thinking about it, for relatively cheap. Here is a link where Vincel Laforet talks about how many images he shot at the Olympics. This does not surprise me at all. Sure, its not fun going through all of those images, but you would certainly rather have too many than not enough.
The experiment went like this: 10 basketball players, 10 coaches and 10 sportswriters, plus a group of complete basketball novices watched a video clip of a player attempting a free throw. Not surprisingly, the players were significantly better at predicting whether or not the shot would go in. While they got it right more than two-thirds of the time, the non-playing experts (i.e., the coaches and writers) only got it right 44 percent of the time.
Pretty cool stuff, but not all that surprising. Still, the idea that the empathy of the person watching can be that accurate, even through video (or video game maybe? or film?) is impressive.
That, coupled with Usain Bolt?s stunning 9.69 in the men?s 100m, got me thinking about another world record: Michael Johnson?s unbelievable 200m sprint at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Johnson himself says he?s ready to see Bolt break his record, which is surprising given how untouchable Johnson?s mark seems. I remember seeing a chart about a decade ago that illustrated how dominant Johnson?s record is, and seeing how I couldn?t track it down with Google, I?ve recreated it here (if anyone can find the original chart, circa 1998 or so, I?d love to give credit to the original creator).
For the record, I think Bolt is a showoff. Personally, the guy is obviously capable, but I think the IOC should have disqualified him for that grandstanding he did in the 100m. You go hard to the finish or you don't go at all.
You are looking at the new aDeepBlue.com. We hope you are enjoying what you are seeing. This is the latest project from Ryan Guill, a Web Application Developer from Memphis, TN.
