Some remaining bits from discussion in class last night:
In class, we had discussed whether executives will blog, or just have convincing ghost writers. Here is a job that seems to be the latter. They would need to get good people: maybe they should hire me :).
On the mapping front, Google has released Google Earth. Go try it, lots of cool stuff.
As noted in class, the new 2257 guidelines (or see the Fleshbot writeup) are being fought by an adult-industry advocacy group, the Free Speech Coalition. As I noted in class, I do think there is a need for record-keeping, and I think objectives of 2257 require a certain amount of balancing, but it does appear that the new regulations over-reach. A much more sensible process would be to require web producers (“secondary producers”) to keep records of where they got the images, and to provide this electronically on a page on the website.
