Bookmarks for December 22nd

When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on December 22nd:

  • Is a picture really worth £1,000?: A church and small businesses are just some of those accusing picture agencies of using heavy-handed tactics when pursuing payment. Wendy M Grossman on the heavy-handed tactics picture agencies use.
  • The State Of The Twittersphere (HubSpot Edition): Until Twitter releases its own State of the Twittersphere report, this is as good as the data gets. 70% of Twitter users joined in 2008. 20% of Twitter users have joined in the past 60 days. The average user has been on Twitter 275 days.
  • The year 2008 in photographs: 2008 has been an eventful year to say the least – it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I’ve done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs.
  • Drillers break into magma chamber: Drillers looking for geothermal energy in Hawaii inadvertently put a well right into a magma chamber in 2005. Molten rock pushed back up the borehole several meters before solidifying, making it perfectly safe to study.
