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 Lee Miller, John Locher, that mug shot, a used Leica M240, the Mopria Alliance and managing AI.

  • In Climate Activism's Death Valley Daze, Conohar Scott analyzes John Locher’s July 16 photo of a demonstrator alongside visitors posing by the 130 degree temperature reading.
  • A.D. Coleman critiques The Mug Shot Seen Round the World and a few others taken for the occasion. He suspects "Trump and his advisors studied the published mugshots of the indictees who preceded him for booking during the previous days, prepping and practicing not only his expression but his pose, including his posture and even his proximity to the lens."
  • Kirk Tuck succumbs to his long-held desire to own the Leica M240, which he found used with an extra battery and a thumb grip. Earlier this year he acquired three M mount lens for use on his L-mount cameras with a Leica adapter.
  • Richard Speed reports Microsoft to Kill Off Third-Party Printer Drivers in Windows by 2027. Microsoft apparently will rely on the Mopria Alliance's universal standards for printing and scanning.
  • Diane Bartz and Trevor Hunnicutt report Adobe, Others Join Voluntary U.S. Scheme to Manage AI Risks. The companies, which include IBM and Nvidia, have signed "Biden's voluntary commitments governing artificial intelligence, which require steps such as watermarking AI-generated content."

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