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 Afghan girls, Steven Kovacs, camera disappointments, the Jollylook and Network Locations.

  • Rahim Faiez and Siddiqullah Alizai report Afghan Girls Face Uncertain Future after a year without school. "With no sign the ruling Taliban will allow them back to school, some are trying to find ways to keep education from stalling for a generation of young women," they write. That includes underground schools. Photos by Ebrahim Noroozi.
  • Grace Ebert presents The Shimmering Unearthly Bodies of Larval Fish captured by Steven Kovacs during blackwater dives off the Florida coast and near Kona, Hawaii. "Expeditions have brought encounters with both the elusive acanthonus armatu and a type of larval ipnopidae that hasn't been documented previously," she writes.
  • In The Camera for Me, Mike Johnston revisits the "many times that I've been disappointed by developments in cameras." Nothing's perfect, of course. But the camera for us seems to be the ones we've already bought. You could call that a philosophy of life.
  • In This Really Epic DIY Camera Helps a Ukrainian Company Recover, Hillary Grigonis the Jollylook pinhole camera you build yourself that uses Instax film.
  • Jason Snell reports Apple Removes Network Locations From macOS Ventura. "Network Locations is a feature of macOS that, ever since version 10.0, has allowed users to switch between different sets of network configuration preferences in different environments and situations," he writes. As if we don't need that any more. He hopes this becomes a third-party opportunity, as if was in the old days before Network Locations.

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