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 Pennsylvania's bygone lumber industry, senior track and field athletes, flash card reliability and using big data to target a client.

  • In From Mystery to History: Pennsylvania's Bygone Lumber Industry, David Gonzalez presents 22 scans of William T. Clarke's 19th century glass negatives which appear in Wood Hicks and Bark Peelers published by Penn State University Press.
  • In Winning the Race Against Time, Emily Anne Epstein presents 17 photos by Angela Jimenez of track and field athletes over the age of 60. "They are not weak, or vulnerable, or just cute: they are fierce and competitive," Jimenez says.
  • After a million shots on his Sony A7R II, Jim Kasson reflects on Flash Card Reliability, specifically 256-GB and 512-GB Lexar Professional and SanDisk Extreme Pro cards.
  • Heidi Volpe applies Big Data in 2016 to targeting a specific magazine client. She presents "a simple exercise with a year long snap shot of three different magazines who share some of the same space in the market."

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
