Creative Commons Under Attack!
Michelle Greer recently wrote an article that believers on Creative Commons (like me) should read. What’s with these people?
I know we’ve got people like Joi Ito, Cory Doctorow, Xeni Jardin, and many others in our camp… I have no doubt we will win the fight, but it’s still a worthy cause for artists and the web. I know that not all photographers agree with me, and that’s okay. (You’ll come around!)
If you are still flummoxed about IP and Art, I invite you to see a new perspective from a TED speech. See my Best TED Talks page — there is a new one from Johanna Blakeley who gives a counter-intuitive talk about copying and the fashion industry.
Daily Photo – Tokyo Tunnel
During a fun photowalk in Tokyo, we were doing our best to get a city shot around sunset. We speculated that perhaps the best way to get from Point A to a mysterious Point B was to go through this tunnel. It didn’t quite get us where we wanted to go, but we did arrive someplace different.
Halfway through the tunnel, I asked my mates if I could set up for a quick HDR. Luckily, I was surrounded by people that also love HDR, so they agreed with knowing smiles.
