We The People … Snap Pictures

Donovan Janus, the Dutch programming god behind Exposure Manager (disclosure: I have an interest in the business) has created two galleries to consolidate the “Citizen’s Media” view of the election and of the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan.

One, going live today, is “www.electionphotos04.com” a photo gallery of images from the bloggers covering the conventions and campaigns. It’s a free service which we’re offering to try and encourage those taking photos of the campaigns to publish their images. A RSS feed will be available at (www.electionphotos04.com/rss.xml).

The other, going live late next week, will be “www.photosfromiraq.com“, which is actually for pictures from serving military in both Iraq and Afghanistan (“picturesfromiraqandafghanistan.com” gave me carpal tunnel just thinking about it). Again, the goal is to provide a broader view of what’s going on there than the “if it bleeds it leads” coverage we get from the mainstream media. Similarly, a RSS feed will be available.

More as things develop (as they say).

  1. The Least Successful Executions
    History has furnished us with two executioners worthy of attention.
    The first performed in Sydney in Australia. In 1803 three attempts were
    made to hang a Mr. Joseph Samuels. On the first two of these the rope
    snapped, while on the third Mr. Samuels just hung there peacefully until he
    and everyone else got bored. Since he had proved unsusceptible to capital
    punishment, he was reprieved.
    The most important British executioner was Mr. James Berry who
    tried three times in 1885 to hang Mr. John Lee at Exeter Jail, but on each
    occasion failed to get the trap door open.
    In recognition of this achievement, the Home Secretary commuted
    Lee’s sentence to “life” imprisonment. He was released in 1917, emigrated
    to America and lived until 1933.
