There were no spooky ghosts or constant howling noises in this episode but we did manage to go in-depth with John James Jacoby to discuss bbPress and BuddyPress. During the show, we find out why he left Automattic for 10UP, what is was like to jump into the project lead position for bbPress after so many people had accepted the project as being abandoned, and finally, where he sees BuddyPress 2 years from now. We could have talked to JJJ all night about forums and social activity but unfortunately, we only had 68 minutes with him. That’s ok because he’ll definitely be on the show again to cover some ground we didn’t get to in this episode.

I don’t really snap pictures at all, let alone use filters. But I’ve come to a simple conclusion when it comes to filters: Most of them are no different than your average smartphone snapshot: It doesn’t look like the real thing. Cameras will never see colors and shadows (and lens flares) quite the same way we do.
In a picture of friends or a setting sun, we see more than the pixels on a 2D surface; there are emotions tied to it. Filters allow amateurs to effortlessly edit their pictures to match whatever emotional attachment they had with a photograph. As long as the professionals, who can usually do *much* better than a filter, don’t start “processing” their snapshots just for the heck of it, I’ll save my rantstick for something more pressing.
