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. This time we look at the Summer of '78, the Ramones, Vladimir, Harold Davis on the road without his suitcase, difficult subjects and the Open Internet Pledge.

  • In Scenes Unseen: The Summer of '78, Jim Dwyer presents a few of the 2,924 color slides exposed in parks across New York City's five boroughs late in the summer of 1978. Talk about a way back machine.
  • In Remembering When the Ramones Were Young, Raw, and Couldn't Take a Bad Photo, Mark Murrmann interviews Danny Fields about his behind-the-scenes photos of "New York's first and best punk band." Fields recalls, "They had a sense of always facing an audience, whether that audience was the photographer or the potential audience on the other side of the lens. They just knew how to do it."
  • Vladimir the Photographer explains a lot. Like why the photographer is never in the picture:
  • In Beginning My Compostela, Harold Davis has to leave his suitcase (with his tripod) behind to catch a connecting flight. "Well, a little bit of hardship is probably a good way to begin a pilgrimage," he writes.
  • "Consider today's post not quite a tale of woe, not quite an instruction manual, not quite a catalog of humour, but perhaps a little of all three," Mind Thein writes in Working With Difficult Subjects. It's also a nice set of solutions for some nasty problems.
  • The Cities Open Internet Pledge lists over 100 mayors who have pledged to require all Internet providers with whom they do business to follow a strong set of Net Neutrality principles. You know, despite the FCC's vote to repeal the regulations late last year.

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