Interesting reading on the ‘net

By Robert Hanashiro, Sports Shooter Newsletter

Controversy surrounding a high-profile contest? Say it isn’t! Call me old school --- or just old --- but digitally altering an image for news coverage is still a no-no to me. Do the ends justify them means? Read photographer Chip Litherland’s take on his personal blog:

Copyright and getting paid for your work is always a strong topic on the Message Board. What does Shakespeare have to do with all of that? Read this piece from the NY Times op-ed page (thanks for sending this to me Epp!):

HBO’s fun series “Taxi Cab Confessions” has always been a favorite of mine. Check out this very cool video by my buddy Myung J. Chun on Johnny Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) being driving to their office for an interview:

I love looking at newspapers. When the Sports Designers website closed down last year I was very sad --- where else could I see the sports front from the LA Times and a paper in Brazil in the same place? Well has been resurrected via the “social network” on Facebook (where else?):

And we finish up with a fun video at Phillip Bloom’s cool website:
