Gorgeous fashion photography in the NYTimes

I’m not sure what story these photos are associated with, but this slide show, titled Prints and the Revolution, has nine striking photographs, such as this one, where model “Assitan Sidibé wears a Marni polka-dot top. Christian Lacroix striped top. Marc Jacobs dress. Christian Louboutin shoes. Dries Van Noten bracelet”. Fantastic (and expensive) clothes, great looking models, but really great photography. Fashion photography at it’s best.


On Iran, CNN, and #CNNfail

As fallout from the elections in Iran continues, a side debate is occurring around the role of mainstream media and in particular, the role of CNN. As you can see from the title of this article in the NYTimes.com: Dear CNN, Please Check Twitter for News About Iran, CNN (or at least CNN.com) has had poor coverage of the events in Iran. Indeed, not only is alot of information about Iran being sent around on sites like twitter as well as many blogs, but condemnation of CNN has also been happening at the same time. So much so, in fact, that criticism of CNN on twitter can be found by searching for #cnnfail. Check out the article for more on this story.

Google, Twitter, and what we want from the Web

It’s odd to read this article and think of Google in the same way we now think of Microsoft. From Microsoft, to Google, to Twitter, each company had it’s day when it was seen as the premiere innovative company, only to be surpassed by the other. While Microsoft is still competing with Google (see Bing), Google is still seen as the one to beat. Or is it? See, Hey, Just a Minute (or Why Google Isn’t Twitter) in the NYTimes.com and decide for yourself.
