Our internet experience is already split into two classes, "enterprise" and "consumer". Enterprise users get to use endpoint devices that are properly secured, and vendors work hard to keep it that way -- provided you've got more than 500 or 1,000 employees. Consumers, on the other hand, get whatever they're handed. Their data and communications are mere fodder for whatever commercial interests the vendor might have.

In the 1930s and ’40s, newspaper photographers used 4-by-5 Speed Graphic cameras with flash bulbs, which necessitated a more formal, deliberate approach to image making. Back then, criminal kingpins like Al Capone and John Dillinger were eager for press coverage, and they frequently posed for photographers.

“In the old days, photographers were very much working with the police. They were stationed at police precincts, and they’d be sitting next to the sergeants when calls came in—they’d be able to run out to a scene and get there sometimes even before the police,” Zajakowski said.

Today, photographs of crime are vastly different. Crime bosses are no longer mugging for cameras and photographers are kept at a greater distance from crime scenes due to a decline in trust between police and newspapers. In response, crime photographers today tend to focus less on capturing the immediate, often gory scene after an incident. Instead, they continue to cover stories long after the initial crime, taking the time to follow up with victims and loved ones for more emotionally driven narratives.

In 2013, two things happened at the Chicago Tribune that eventually led to the exhibit, “Crime Then and Now: Through the Lens of the Chicago Tribune,” which is on display at the Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University in Chicago until April 11.

This is more a Chrome browser question, but since that's what runs on a Chromebook...

Here's a typical "new tab." It usually shows what web pages you've used most recently. You can remove one by hitting the corner x on the small page, but how do you add one? I've accidentally x'ed a favorite website more than once, and not been able to add it back.

Could you set your Facebook page as your home tab? You could have it show the home icon at the top of your browser. If you can't get the chrome browser to open to it automatically, you can click on the icon to get it right away.

On Friday, in an update by Social Product Support Manager Jessica Pelegio on Google's Product Forums, the tech giant said in light of feedback and concern relating to the "retroactive enforcement of the new policy," which would impact on bloggers who have held accounts for over 10 years, Google has reversed its decision to ban explicit content entirely from the network.

In addition, Pelegio said the reversal was due in part to the potential "negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities."
Summary:The tech giant has completed a hasty U-turn on the decision to ban sexually explicit content from Blogger blogs.

Story
Introduction
Presently employed as the Media Editor for e-WV: The West Virginia Encyclopedia. Photographer 1981-2010 for WV Division of Culture and History, an often-fun job that involved illustrating articles for Goldenseal magazine, photographing old-time music and folklife events (Vandalia Gathering, String Band Festival at Clifftop), and doing other stuff to promote arts, history and culture in West Virginia.

OK, what you really want to know is what I'm interested in. With no particular order, and subject to change:
  • photography
  • art and film
  • music
  • guitars
  • technology
  • fairly liberal politics

Bragging rights
I survived state government employment long enough to qualify for early retirement!
