Internet Trust and Sharing
I catch a lot of flak from other photographers for my views on sharing photography and art on the Internet. That’s okay… by now, most of you know that I don’t mind going against the grain (especially when I am right). This new way of sharing art on the Internet has been expounded upon by Matt Brandon from Digital Trekker – click to see his article. Matt is a really nice guy, and I enjoyed my conversation with him.
Of my many points, I am convinced that legitimate companies do not steal. And just because my stuff is Creative Commons, it does not mean they have commercial rights to it. They simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org and work out a deal — our licensing team entertains dozens of emails per week. It clearly works in our situation.
I have put a little video before that I found on Matt’s site on Creative Commons, in case you are not familiar with it…
Daily Photo – Beyond the Dome
This was one of those perfect days where I woke up and had no real responsibilities. I was able to drive aimlessly around Yellowstone to explore places I had never been. I took the road up north and went down as many side-roads as I could. After a bit of driving, and listening to some good audio books, I found this remarkable place.
I have a bunch of other images from Yellowstone. As always, you can just click on that link or the category at the bottom to see more from that location.
