In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at cameras of the year, David Vestal tributes, the Creative Cloud and creativity.

  • The Camera of the Year discussion has already begun. Kirk Tuck has a three way tie. David Hobby makes a good case for Fujifilm, Thom Hogan covers the mirrorless landscape. More to come, no doubt. No way to stop them.
  • Don't miss Jim Hughes's David Vestal: A Wonderful Life at The Online Photographer. Vestal, who taught photography at the Parsons School of Design, recently passed away and Hughes, who edited Camera 35 and Camera Arts, knew him a long time. Earlier TOP editor Mike Johnson wrote his own tribute.
  • For those keeping score, Adobe reports over 400,000 sign-ups to Creative Cloud in the last three months for over 1.4 million total. Over 500 new and improved features were introduced in CC applications this year and over 2.4 million projects published on Behance, which exceeds the previous six years combined.
  • "People are biased against creative thinking," Jessica Olien points out in an Inside the Box science article for Slate. But you already knew that.

More to come...
