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 a portrait of Julian Bond, Darkroom 2.0, giga coasters and encrypting thumbdrives.

  • In Things That Stay With You, Joe McNally remembers a session with Julian Bond. "It was a typical assignment in certain ways, in that it was all too brief. He had a window, about 2 hours, and during that time we photographed both at his home, and at the Vietnam Wall Memorial."
  • Rob DePaolo reviews the Updated Darkroom App for iOS, including its new Color and Tone adjustment tools and filter sharing.
  • In Just How Tall Can Roller Coasters Get, Mekado Murphy looks at skyscraper-tall giga coasters with the help of some very large illustrations. Don't fall off the page.
  • USB thumbdrive encryption is a hot topic lately with solutions ranging from public domain software to expensive encrypted drives. It's worth pointing out that Mac users can encrypt any drive (not just USB thumbdrives) using Disk Utility as David Martin explained years ago in Encrypt Your USB Flash Drives, External USB Drives Or SD Cards.
