Found on the ‘net (more later today):

  • Update 1: Newspaper hypocrisy: Anonymity online, but not in print? Cyberjournalist.org points to a piece that wonders if there’s not some hypocrisy at work in the way newspapers handle reader contributions. Or maybe it’s just the difference in platforms.
  • Update 2: Things News Website Visitors Never, Ever Say (The Remix). Steve Safran remixes himself with the help of readers and his original list, which I pointed to last week, gets even better.
  • Turkey Cinemascope. An astonishing series of panoramic photos by Turkish photographer and film director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Among his film work is “Uzak” (English language title “Distant”), a slow-moving, immersive experience with outstanding cinematography. The same eye is at work in these photos. I’d buy some if they weren’t almost $4,000 each. Via Ottmar Liebert.
  • Difference in quality of QuickTime-exported video on Intel, PowerPC-based Macs. Techie alert: Macfixit has screenshots showing degraded image quality in video on Intel Macs compared to PowerPC-based Macs, when exported through QuickTime at the same settings.
  • CNN to Tap Citizen Journalism. Everyone’s into the increasingly exploitive game. They’re not paying and they want, according to one report, “a non-exclusive, perpetual, and free license to edit, telecast, rerun, syndicate, and otherwise transmit and transmute your material into any form or medium they like, forever.” I wouldn’t give them anything. (Oops. Just noticed this isn’t news: it’s from August 2006 and for some reason my RSS reader just threw it up now. The point still stands.)
  • If 37 percent say they want more training, what training do they need? Mindy McAdams suggests it’s time for newspapers not just to train, but to figure out what they’re training for. Sound advice, as usual. Update: Ryan Sholin has a couple of very smart additions to the list.
  • It isn’t (yet) all about the Internet. Jon Udell discovers the power of reaching out in real space to make good on all the potential we bloggies talk to each other about. It’s a short post, but one of the most important I’ve read in the last little while.
