OK, Now it’s Official…it’s really to Air on Thursdays!

A further update from Scott (this is actually starting to get interesting) on his blog explains that TV networks don’t have the same calendar as the rest of us.

“A 24 hour period of 5am to 5am is a day of programming for them. So when they said 1:30am on Wednesday it actually falls on Thursday at 1:30am which is still in the Wednesday block of time for their scheduling. Which means our show airs on Thursday at 1:30am.”

Geotagging, in which digital photos are labeled with the location where they were taken, is mostly unfamiliar to photographers today. But new developments are likely going to put the technology on the map.
