shundhammer/qphotoview: Qt-based photo viewer that concentrates on what photographers need.
I like how salty this guy is about all the "other" Linux image viewers. Gave a shoutout to 'xv' though!

1848 Daguerreotypes Bring Middle America’s Past to Life | WIRED |
Fontayne and Porter were definitely skilled, but no one knew just how amazing their images were until three years ago, when conservators at George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, began restoration work on the deteriorating plates. Magnifying glasses didn’t exhaust their detail; neither did an ultrasharp macro lens. Finally, the conservators deployed a stereo microscope. What they saw astonished them: The details — down to window curtains and wheel spokes — remained crisp even at 30X magnification. The panorama could be blown up to 170 by 20 feet without losing clarity; a digicam would have to record 140,000 megapixels per shot to match that. Under the microscope, the plates revealed a vanished world, the earliest known record of an urbanizing America.

What purpose does the Oxford comma serve?

Marco McClean lori58 • 2 days ago

It indicates a cheerful, though perhaps coquettish, nature, devoid of criminal tendencies, guile, and dark primitive umbrage. Therefore, it should be brushed, or scraped, in, and never out, unless it is for the world of to-morrow, in which our story is set, where the sake of future historical accuracy obviously outweighs the need to hook a husband in the here and now. Of course, if commas are hideously pronounced at the nostrils, or bracket the corners of the mouth like little bulwarks against marauding insects, then throw the future out the window, dear, and concentrate your efforts on the here, and the now.

Don’t Look: Beheadings, Stolen Nudes and Choosing to Be Decent | TIME
Decency, at least a very big part of it, is knowing that you are permitted to do a thing–it’s physically possible, it’s not illegal, no one can stop you–yet you shouldn’t anyway. And it’s about something that probably every one of us who uses the Internet loses sight of sometimes: that at the other end of all these views and comments and transactions, there is, or was, an actual human person.

Dharavi - a set on Flickr

When I was 6 years old I won a Kentucky Fried Chicken colouring competition and have been involved in Visual Communications ever since.

Am from New Zealand which I've always considered a very lucky place to be from. After completing a degree in Anthropolgy and some creative wanderings in film & design I set up a graphic design company: Meanest Indian in the Land and later started teaching design at university. Spent a few years in Hong Kong followed by another couple in India – teaching at the National Institute of Design (NID) – and then on to Europe from where I continued to lecture and dabbled in writing for the occasional publication, including Monocle magazine and the Guardian.

I'm now back in New Zealand where I focus on research, writing, comms. and brand strategy for clients both here and offshore. Am also keen on evolving directions of design for social innovation – significantly via my work with OpenIDEO. You can check out my explorations on the intersection of communication, culture and creativity at Random Specific.

Am happiest when global roaming with my eyes wide open and my camera ready for action.
