The NYT Magazine has an article about the art of the "Flickr photograph"
Rebekka Guoleifsdottir's rise on Flickr and her evolution as a photographer is examined in detail but when it got to the more risque Merkley, the article started to talk about him and then just abruptly stopped. Why mention him at all if he's not going to get the same treatment?

Jean Nouvel is the 2008 Pritzker Architecture Prize winner
He looks eerily like Dr. Evil, doesn't he? Also see my photos of his Guthrie Theater.

This page collects the links to Nicholas Kristof's recent posts and a column related to the upheavals in Tibet
They're worth a read, particularly the comments to the blog posts.
Greenmarket produce scans
Scanning food! That's a great idea.

This week's New Yorker has an interesting piece on elevators
Interspersed in the article is the story of someone who was trapped in an elevator for 41 hours. Be sure to check out the rather disturbing time-lapse security camera video of his ordeal. I was kind of bothered that they made it into a clone of Noah Kalina's "Everyday" video by using a similar sounding soundtrack.
