I've spent more time than I should have this morning playing with Poladroid, which I just downloaded. I LOVE this application. It allows you to drag and drop any digital image file onto a Polaroid camera icon, and "develops" a Polaroid-like image slowly...you can even speed up the "development" process by shaking the image with your mouse. Not quite the same as actually snapping a Polaroid image, but at least if we MUST say goodbye to the real thing, there's this digital fallback...
"We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.
...we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea: Yes We Can."
