Stockbroker Andrew Peterson, who blogs under the pseudonym Thomas Hawk, attacks photographer Jay Maisel in Andy Baio copyright row. But Peterson / Hawk fails to disclose his own recent legal problems when the World Erotic Art Museum threatened to sue him for $2M for intellectual property infringement.
Two gentle men by Marchette Chute on Flickr.
Yahoo! chief Marissa Mayer has also received some flack for off the cuff comments she made. When talking about storage space for photographs, she said “there’s no such thing, really, as professional photographers.” In the context of the question it was clear she was talking about needing large amounts of storage space, but it caused some controversy. She later took to Twitter to apologize, but then deleted those twets.
Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
My children (one boy, one girl) who pretty much like the same things have given up buying or playing with toys. We do art projects and books instead for most gifts for them.
Trell Burton on the recent Flickr changes. Apparently the original post was deleted or closed over night. I have the full text saved in case it is deleted again.
As a Bay Area user with access to a huge infrastructure for internet bandwdth, the majority of complaints mention the slowness of the new site. These full rez images are bandwidth hungry — Flickr and Netflix streaming up at the same time — Netflix loses.
Flickr’s greatest error in their recent redesign was not fully understanding their user base. They probably saw that uptick in iPhone usage and figured an infinite scrolling page of iPhone photos wouldn’t be so bad. What they didn’t think about was that they had RECENTLY released an iPhone ap. So OF COURSE there would be an uptick in iPhone usage.
If Trell’s post is censored again, I will post it in its entirety here. If it is censored here, I will post it on my self hosted blog which is not owned by Yahoo!
My bad. But the rest of the info is right.
i miss this show, but i don’t remember what it’s called.
Oliver and Company? That’s what Google says.
I’ve never seen the movie though.
That’s Fagin from Oliver and Company, a Disney film from 1988 and loosely based on Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.
Cowls, as worn by Batman
I want them all.
Particularly the second one.
I think Flickr screwed up with the new pricing model. They have increased the price for anyone who doesn’t want to view ads and who isn’t an old “pro” account holder. Not only do you pay twice the price of the old pro account, but you get less for the money. You don’t get “unlimited” storage and you don’t get stats.
Also some good thoughts on the now hidden but commonly used tools.
