On lifestyle media goddess Martha Stewart's personal blog, some lovely aerial shots of her farm taken with a popular model of UAV quadcopter.
One of my security detail, Dominic Arena, recently purchased a DJI Phantom flying camera. These drone-like, radio controlled aircraft are lots of fun to play with and they take extraordinary photos. However, controlling them takes practice and getting used to. Since my farm has lots of open fields, Dominic thought it would be the best place to get acquainted with his new toy. The results were amazing! Browse through the photo gallery below and leave a comment.

Projects will always need management. And now with the tech gold rush it feels like there are more projects than ever with fewer managers than there’s demand for.

If you’ve been blessed enough to avoid them yourself, you’ve definitely heard the horror stories. Late night, crushing out a ton of work, writing, coding, anything, then boom – your computer crashes. The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
