TAKING ON THE WORD PIRATES --
Word pirates? They're the ones Dan Gillmor and David Weinberger set out to fight at http://www.wordpirates.com.
As they put it, "Marketers, politicians and other short-sighted, self-interested, sticky-fingered people have been stealing our words. Not only do they take them for commercial purposes, but they misuse them entirely."
The site gives visitors a chance to laugh or nod at the words listed and to vent by adding words or phrases and comments.
One of the entries that hit home: "CHAI TEA: Chai is the Hindi word for tea! When you ask for a cup of 'chai tea' you are asking for a cup of tea tea! -- submitted by Asha"
The pirates will probably win this and most of the other battles. http://www.wordpirates.com/

PhotoMedia, Fall 2011 -- The Art of Observation --
Gary Halpern, The PhotoMedia Group, Inc., Seattle, WA ...
"Remember people saying they get Playboy for the stories? Well, PhotoMedia is one magazine that you're not embarrassed to get for the photos because the photos and photo layouts are a visual feast -- a treat for the senses. And, the feature articles are the other, compelling reason, with superb insights into the photographs, and with interviews of (and comments by) the pros who took them."
