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 Bruce Polin, a diffuser, Exposure X4.5, amateurs, digital literacy and two Supreme Court decisions.

  • Jim Kasson asks, Are Amateurs Unserious About Image-Making?. Or, as he puts it at the end of the piece, "Are the 'net denizens as a group more interested in playing with shiny toys than in making images? I guess it's possible, but I find the thought depressing."
  • Alex Gray considers How Digital Literacy Affects the Modern Workforce, listing both the top five soft and hard skills as well as the attributes of the digitally literate identified by the International Society for Technology in Education. "As the workforce is becoming more and more digitized, graduates entering the workforce need to have more than just the hard skills required for their desired profession," he writes.
  • In Supreme Court Ruling on Two Copyright Issues, Greenberg & Reznicki note, "As we have written, lectured, screamed and cajoled for decades, the bottom line coming from both cases is that copyright owners should register their work early and all of the time, always, no exceptions." They also report that at least two justices were not entirely familiar with copyright law.

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