The Illusion of Control

There’s been talk of a sequel to the film “Groundhog Day” which would be simply the same movie, re-released. Good one. Today this image appeared on every other weblog I “visited:” tumblr_ni5fpzoX3H1qe0lqqo1_500

It’s a strong image by Thomas Vandenberghe, a dentist in Sandy, Utah (which seems to be an intense, but relatively tiny, hotbed of photography). One guy posted it, and at least two others re-posted before I did, so I guess it’s de rigeur–for today, anyway. More to the point, though, is the drama that unfurled over a couple of days earlier this week regarding  appropriating images from the inter webs. We all realize that whatever one posts on fbook or linked in technically becomes the property of those operations, and no one seems to care; but check out this calamity that existed for a few days. http://enthusiasms.org/post/107730116071 http://blakeandrews.blogspot.com/2015/01/thoughts-on-mpd.html http://blakeandrews.blogspot.com/2015/01/status-back-baby.html You thought that was lot?
