I think I started posting my own photos online sometime in 2002-2003. During all this time, two things have remained the same: the overall ignorance of most web users about photographic copyright and the duplicity of some social media websites in keeping their users ignorant about the topic. Most images uploaded to social media are … Continue reading Photography and social media: still a recipe for copyright issues
Good question. Some of you have gotten quite accustomed to those daily Condensed Knowledge posts, and they've gone AWOL since last week. On the other hand, others have told me they were distracting, and detracted from the substance of my site. I'd been giving the matter some thought myself, and in the end, sided with … Continue reading Where are the Condensed Knowledge posts?

Around noon today, I saw Scoble's Twitter about Google's purchase of Jaiku, and left two comments on his blog post. Basically, I said that Jaiku's purchase made sense, but that Google probably considered Twitter and found Jaiku to be less expensive. I use both Twitter and Jaiku myself. I tried using Jaiku as my primary … Continue reading Google bought Jaiku
This is Part Two of a mini-series on microblogging services such as Twitter, Jaiku and Pownce. You can read Part One here. I promised you yesterday that I'd continue to discuss microblogging services in today's post, and in particular, to show you how I use them to promote my own content and that of other … Continue reading The value of microblogging services (part two)

When Jaiku got started about the same time, people again asked that same question. When Pownce got started recently, I was the one asking that question.
