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 Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Lensfun, Paul Reiffer and Facebook.

  • The Guardian presents a gallery of images to celebrate the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away yesterday afternoon at the age of 87. Former president Barack Obama saluted her, "Justice Ginsburg helped us see that discrimination on the basis of sex isn't about an abstract ideal of equality; that it doesn't only harm women; that it has real consequences for all of us. It's about who we are -- and who we can be."
  • Started by Andrew Zabolotny in 2007, Lensfun is "a library for correcting several artefacts and a database for storing lens profiles" that you use with image editing software that supports open source Lensfun profiles.
  • In his continuing effort to avoid turning into "a grumpy old guy," Kevin Raber has a Conversation With Paul Reiffer about "photography workshops, iconic location photography and seeing different."
  • In Facebook Accused of Watching Instagram Users Through Cameras, Robert Brunson reports the company is accused of intentionally of collecting "lucrative and valuable data on its users that it would not otherwise have access to." Facebook blamed a bug triggering false notifications that Instagram was accessing the camera.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
