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 Nature Conservancy contest winners, Siena Photo Award winners, Haiti, backups, surveillance and the Internet Road Map.

  • Alan Taylor presents 18 photos of the winners of the Nature Conservancy Photo Contest. "Entries from 196 different countries and territories were judged in six different categories, including Climate, Landscape, People and Nature, Plants and Fungi, Water and Wildlife," he notes.
  • Matt Fidler presents a few Siena Photo Award Winners from the 11 categories on display in Italy.
  • In Haiti at Breaking Point, Evens Sanon and dánica Coto cover the protests after the government announced fuel subsidies would be eliminated, causing prices to double. "The poorest country in the Western hemisphere is in the grips of an inflationary vise that is squeezing its citizenry and exacerbating protests that have brought society to the breaking point," they write.
  • How Do You Manage and Backup Your Photos on Mac? Software prompts an interesting discussion on the Mac Power Users forum. For the record, we use two network drives, two local external drives and DVD backups these days.
  • Grace Ebert looks at Jeff Bartel's paintings focused on Surveillance in Modern Life that show enormous antique cameras intruding on public life.
  • In 'A Scarce and Unusual Image', Jason Snell finds out the subscriber giveaway Internet Road Map project he worked on with Shelly Brisbin in the mid-1990s for MacUser is worth $1,750. "We wanted every link on the Internet Road Map to be real, representing an actual hyperlink on the Internet from one page to another," he writes.

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