Heh. Actually, he'd done that, to that same photo, a while ago...
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
A forecast from 2 years ago might have assumed Flash Lite getting onto more mobile platforms than it has. The iPhone & iPod Touch, for example, certainly take a decent chunk of the mobile market at the moment, and neither can run Flash.
And, to be more complete, a "copywright" is the guy who works in a copy shop making copies. Like a shipwright builds ships and a playwright writes plays.
(I need to get "copywright" into publication at some point so the OED will finally recognize my mad genius!)
Damn. I've been following the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) emails for years and this one managed to slip into my spam filter. Thanks slashdot! for making sure I didn't miss it this year!!!

The glass-floored Skywalk allows visitors to peer 4,000 feet (1220 meters) down into the canyon. The caveat? Each visitor must pay $25.00 (USD) PLUS addition fees to get to the viewing area. I guess the $25 will help defray the cleaning costs when weak-stomached folks lose their lunch upon realizing they are standing in mid-air over a 4,000 foot drop, a-la Wile E. Coyote..."
