From the mouth of flickr

"with so many people taking photographs there’s really no such thing as professional photographers anymore."

Courtesy of Marissa Mayer, Grand Poobah of Yahoo - that's a Gilbert and Sullivan term, look it up.

Well, blow me down. She's either such a visionary that this is beyond my comprehension, or she's so  arrogant that this doesn't even qualify as stupid.

If this had come from the lads at Google, I might be pissed but it would give me pause. But to come from "also ran" Yahoo, it strikes me as a bit rich.

I can only presume that as a new mother, Ms Mayer is undergoing a metamorphisis and is in the process of becoming an Oracle - nothing to do with Larry Ellison, but a Greek one.

Breakfast companions of the day

My breakfast plate about ten seconds after I got up and started to walk away.

We're in the Riviera Maya where the locals call these little guys, "qwate", that's the phonetic spelling. I looked them up and couldn't find anything. They look like a cross between a Raccoon and a Lemur and they're highly skilled at begging.

Guess I'll have to get a bigger plate tomorrow.
