These days, Mr. Steve-O, as he is often called by friends and associates, dabbles in multi-media. He is often known for his instruction activities (from 1972 to 1996) at CDC/NIOSH. There, he also assisted in developing instructional slide show and video products but also developed numerous computer-based training products (initially for the Apple II and, later, for the PC platform). In the 1990's a major project was The Kayles' Difficult Decisions, programming and assisting in the design of an interactive multimedia CD-ROM based narrative simulation exercise. Ca. 2001, Steve assisted in the creation of six internet-based Construction-related Training Exercises for the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC) at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. During the first decade of the 2000's, Steve was a professor at Chatfield College, teaching courses such as photography and PowerPoint. These days, he is accused of dilly-dallying around, taking on personal media-related challenges whenever they pique his interest. For fun, when circumstances so deserve, he snaps photos with his Blackberry and posts some on his BLOG. Then again, other circumstances require higher-quality digital or film cameras such as those used in the book "Cutting to the Root of Ageism: The Effect of Developing Three Gifts ". Lately, he has been more interested in audio or video documentary recordings. One such example is at The Library of Congress, Veterans History Project. Following are some audio and/or visual products from recent years:
My new photo blog
I've started a new blog where I would show photos I've taken using better cameras (in contrast to my Blackberry Photos Blog). Included are scans I've made from reflective images, transparencies, and negatives. Although many images are new, many reach back into my archives - digital, film, and hard copy. When one starts a blog, for example, one quickly finds that it's really difficult to come up with a blog name or title that someone else has not already snatched up - especially if its photography or image related! Well, this one worked: "In a Fractional Second" Those with a Google Account are free to provide (moderated) comments.
Hurley Reunion Photos for 2013
OK, right now, I'm in a late 60's photo-journalistic retro monochrome mood these days. For this reunion (it was a family thing, not a professional "photo shoot"), I shot a roll of Kodak T-max ISO 400 b&w film on my 1980 vintage Nikon equipment. I developed it myself using Ilford Ilfosol 3. (Oh, you really don't care about those details. OK) Also included below are fotos taken using a little red digital Samsung pocket video camera that also takes stills at video HD resolution. With no further ado:
How about listening to the 2010 Christmas Concert featuring original music composed by Sr. Cecilia Huber, OSU? There are six pieces which, in this player, should sequence automatically in order. The first is an introduction by the President of Chatfield College. Performed live, at 7:00 PM, December 3, 2010 at the Sacred Heart Chapel in St. Martin, Ohio. Sponsored by Chatfield College and the Lulu O. Craig Fine Arts Fund. Instead of using the player below, consider visiting the actual website for this concert at the Internet Archive. It contains mp3 files, detailed credits, and lists the musical segments individually, in order, allowing random access.
The first piece is a 50-second introduction by Brian. Next are 10 songs resonating from the 1886 Roosevelt Organ inside the Sacred Heart Chapel. The chapel is located in St. Martin, Ohio on the grounds of the Ursulines of Brown County Ohio and Chatfield College. These recordings were made on June 20, 2007 by Brian Highlander and Steve Bayer (sanus_excipio) as part of a multi-media course Mr. Highlander was taking at Chatfield College. Sister Cecilia Huber is the organist. See the website for this concert at the Internet Archive that contains the original hi-fi wave files and additional information.
Ursulines of Brown County Ohio Tour
This video is the product of an experimental independent-study multimedia course taken in 2006, at Chatfield College, by Mr. Steve-O. This movie provides a virtual tour of the grounds and some nut-shell history of the Ursulines of Brown County Ohio, in St. Martin, Ohio. Also, on the grounds, is the main campus of Chatfield College. A portion of the video shows Sr. Cecilia Huber playing the 1860's Roosevelt Pipe Organ. A web page at the Internet Archive provides other video options and more information.
My Amazing Reverie

The Man with the Drill and the Brain-eating Dog
The Man with the Drill and the Brain-eating Dog was an afternoon's recording project, written spontaneously by Mr. Steve-O and narrated by Stephanie - who was about 12 years old at the time (ca. 1999).
