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 Carl van der Linde, Fred Baldwin, Joe McNally, Hiro, an old iPad and scholarship.

  • In The Vibrancy and Boldness of Zanzibar's Youth Culture, Devid Gualandris presents the images of South African photographer Carl van der Linde. "The Cape Town-based portrait and documentary photographer is known for transporting viewers to far away places and for detailing a cultural fluidity and depth often overlooked by tourism," he writes.
  • In Picasso, Afghanistan and Me, the Guardian features images from Fred Baldwin's new photographic memoir.
  • Joe McNally conducts the first round of a Q&A From Olympic Coverage. "Shared as often as I could and it triggered a lot of questions and hopefully, in the next few blogs, I can get to a few I zeroed in on and then anymore that this might trigger," he writes. Worth a click just to look at the pictures.
  • Want more Hiro? The Guardian has a selection of the recently deceased photographer's work.
  • Derrick Story came up with Five Excellent Ways to Repurpose an Aging iPad. Number 4 is to make a digital picture frame out of it (and he means actually frame it).
  • In Nnngh. The State of Scholarship, Andrew Molitor bemoans the state of academic scholarship since 1990 and particularly in What Does #Freedom Look Like?, which attempts to analyze Instagram's tendency to portray and propagate certain values or, as the authors say, "Drawing on an epistemology of social constructionism, we ask which visual repertoires are associated with value-related terms on Instagram."

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