Week ending Sunday 2013/05/05

Monday 07:49 · Google Now for iPhone/iPad ships. It’s nifty. googleblog.blogspot.ca/2013/04/google-now-on-your-iphone-and-ipad-with.html [Original.]

Monday 09:39 · It’s *usually* safe to assume that anything Andrew Orloski writes is wrong. Hoping this is an example: www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/29/err_act_landgrab/ [Original.]

Monday 10:46 · Testing claims in www.bjp-online.com/british-journal-of-photography/news/2264780/controversial-copyright-framework-receives-royal-assent - please ignore [Original.]

Monday 10:49 · Wow, seems true: t.co// apparently actively strips Creator fields from image EXIF. I’m absolutely shocked. [Original.]

Monday 11:37 · @pornelski Only thing I’m sure of that it really irritates me. [Original, responding to @pornelski.]

Monday 12:32 · @chuq Which lens(es) did you rent? [Original, responding to @chuq.]

Monday 13:04 · @chuq It’s just fine. Except for I love the 35mm so much I never get around to putting it on. [Original, responding to @chuq.]

Monday 14:35 · Twitter has erased the fact that I took this photo. They shouldn't. More at https://t.co/xAtBmwjUVl [Original.]

Monday 14:47 · @aurynn mm… you’re right. Changed it. [Original, responding to @aurynn.]

Monday 14:49 · @gesa Yeah, already got my knuckles rapped, reworded [Original, responding to @gesa.]

Monday 14:50 · TIL: Facebook, Flickr, Photobucket, and Twitter chop creator Exif. DropBox, Google+, Pinterest, and Tumblr don’t. www.embeddedmetadata.org/social-media-test-results.php [Original.]

Monday 14:55 · It’s not actually a good movie as such, but it is remarkably small: www.wtf.nl/weird-science/10476/bekijk-nu-de-kleinste-film-ooit.html [Original.]

Monday 14:56 · @stuherbert Maybe fixed since this test in March? www.embeddedmetadata.org/social-media-test-results.php [Original, responding to @stuherbert.]

Monday 15:26 · @yoavweiss Sounds plausible [Original, responding to @yoavweiss.]

Monday 15:31 · @migueldeicaza Which fields to keep/drop, it’s complicated. But dropping “Creator” feels really wrong. [Original, responding to @migueldeicaza.]

Monday 16:03 · @thisisaaronland If only just the creator field [Original, responding to @thisisaaronland.]

Monday 20:45 · “The 14mm has very impressive results for distortion (as in, there is none).” slrgear.com/reviews/showproduct.php/product/1539/cat/105 [Original.]

Monday 20:55 · @hfiguiere On the other hand: $900, and immensely larger than the 35mm I use all the time. But yeah. [Original, responding to @hfiguiere.]

Tuesday 00:13 · An (almost) endless flow of photos made mostly on Oly XA, Pentax Spotmatic, & Mamiya 7: tamoneki.tumblr.comhttp://www.tamoneki.tumblr.com/ Hypnotic. [Original.]

Tuesday 00:31 · @glynmoody @opensourcerer To be fair, we’re all reading 2nd-hand takes on the law. But I’ve found Orlowski’s consistent wrongness useful. [Original, responding to @glynmoody.]

Tuesday 00:36 · “The construction of truth is always going to be a messy business” www.salon.com/2013/04/29/wikipedias_shame/ BTW the headline is out of sync with the story [Original.]

Tuesday 00:37 · @opensourcerer @glynmoody Nope, but some sites phones upload to do. [Original, responding to @opensourcerer.]

Tuesday 08:57 · @phljns Make sure you contact your local community, it’s way better doing it with others. [Original, responding to @phljns.]

Tuesday 09:03 · @monkchips Wouldn’t it be best to avoid the term “SOA” given the history there? [Original, responding to @monkchips.]

Tuesday 09:08 · @monkchips But they were wasted, mostly. The core good idea drowned in the morass of hideous protocols & tools. [Original, responding to @monkchips.]

Tuesday 13:50 · @samskiter Hah, @znmeb is having fun being a curmudgeon. Don’t nit-pick him, the world needs intelligent curmudgeons. [Original, responding to @samskiter.]

Wednesday 10:50 · It’s wrong when you find yourself smiling at news that a company you despise has been hacked & leaked PII. [Original.]

Wednesday 10:53 · @sfj First 10 minutes of side 2 of Blues for Allah. [Original, responding to @sfj.]

Wednesday 11:22 · @rgm You have to go with the Loyal Opposition you have, not some imagined ideal. I don’t think they’ll be terrible. [Original, responding to @rgm.]

Wednesday 11:25 · At IO I’ll talk about what I’ve been doing for the last year: IO sched: [Original.]

Wednesday 14:34 · @aisipos dropped some ideas into SO. If you’re still stuck email me the id token and let me have a look at it [Original, responding to @aisipos.]

Wednesday 14:41 · @aisipos Is there a nodeJS library so you can validate the token statically without having to hit our endpoint? If not, we need one. [Original, responding to @aisipos.]
