    Aperture and EXIF GPS Data

    It appears that over time, applications I use tend to mysteriously lose functionality when they are “updated” or “new” versions are released. Yes, I use Apple Inc. products. The latest seems to be the inability to set GPS data in photographs that don’t already contain them. Apple’s new Photos application completely lacks the feature and Aperture (no longer being updated) will not allow modification of the originals. Hence, there I was, just back from a trip around the Grand Canyon with a bunch of photos that needed to be Geo-tagged and no easy way to do it.

    Fixing Absolute Paths, From Jekyll to Cordova

    Jekyll has really been a great tool to develop a site with. It allows me to take a bunch of content and lay it into templates to generate a static website, with dynamic-like content, that can be served from nearly anywhere. With jQuery Mobile and some JavaScript thrown in, an entire application is easily born. This was the approach I took with the Portland Women’s History Trail project.
