Jerry Seinfeld’s Clio Acceptance Speech
This is a brilliant. He makes the whole room laugh while delivering some unvarnished truth to the advertising industry (via Laughing Squid)
Sebastião Salgado’s “Genesis”
Sebastião Salgado’s “Genesis” | PDN Photo of the Day – If you’re in New York, please try to see this exhibition at the International Center of Photography before it finishes in January. I went last year when it was at the Natural History Museum in London and it was truly sublime.

So Twitter ate everyone’s blogging, mine included. I’ve quietly been using this site as a private bookmarking stash, drafting links to things I found interesting with the intent of tidying them up and publishing later. But, of course, the longer that went on the harder it became to go through and tidy each small post, making it fit to share with the world. So I’m just going to dump the lot now and perhaps go back through and edit in public. Have a look through the Linked List, maybe you’ll find something of interest.

No, Spotify isn't paying more to artists than iTunes in Europe (yet) – Ian Betteridge picks apart the misleading stories going around, post- Taylor Swift’s label pulling her music from Spotify
How I created two images with the same MD5 hash – impressive demonstration by Nat McHugh, showing that what once took nation state level resources can now be performed on an Amazon Web Services GPU instance for 65 cents. If it wasn’t clear before, it should be now: MD5 as a secure hash is well and truly dead.
How to apply for a licence to use an orphan work – a big day for the UK copyright & IP industry. The large players have lobbied hard to try to convince the average creative types (photographers, musicians, etc.) to be against this, but it’s fundamentally a good thing and goes at least some way to addressing one of the major problems of copyright: namely its duration is now so long that after a time, for a significant number of works, the creator/rights-holder cannot be found. It’s worth mentioning the new (1st Oct 2014) exceptions to UK copyright, too.
