Portland-based photographer Sarah K. Byrne recently wrote and filmed a detailed tutorial on how to make multiple exposure photographs using a Cannon 5D Mark III camera and accompanied the article with some great examples of her own work. You can see more of her photography over on Tumblr, and if you liked this you can see many more examples of multiple exposure photography right here. (via fstoppers)

Austin Just Might Be the Next City to Get Google Fiber

by Rollin Bishop

Austin, Texas is a pretty important place in the tech world. Companies like IBM, Intel, and Samsung, among others, have offices there, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Google Fiber, meanwhile, is still something that’s only happening in Kansas. That all might be set to change here soon. There are rumors floating around that an upcoming announcement from both Austin and Google will reveal that Google Fiber’s officially coming to the city.

That’s according to VentureBeat, which supposedly has multiple sources saying an announcement set for Tuesday, April 9th “could be” about Google Fiber. Extra emphasis on the “could be,” of course. It could also just be an announcement about an entirely unrelated project, but the invitation to the event certainly seems to indicate something big:

On Tuesday, April 9, at 11 a.m., the City of Austin and Google will make a very important announcement that will have a positive impact on Austinites and the future of the city. We anticipate more than 100 community leaders and elected officials to be in attendance to celebrate this announcement. The event invitation is attached for your convenience. Although we cannot share the details of the announcement with you in advance, we know readers will want to learn more, so we encourage you to join us on Tuesday.

In case you hadn’t heard about Google Fiber before, check out this primer on the service. In a nutshell: Google’s offering some ridiculously good deals on Internet service as long as they can build the proper infrastructure. One would think Austin, of all places, would kill to get in on this.

The Quad Micro Bar is Joe Warren's sleek and clever bar design. If you don't have room for a bar set in your home all the time, you could just keep this one in storage for when you need it. Rain Noe of Core77 writes, "I could see a bunch of these rolling off of a catering truck for on-site events."
