In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at photo documentation of Syria torture, Sunlit, hard drives and social media marketing.

  • Brutal to see Photo Archive Is Said to Show Widespread Torture in Syria. The article explains, "This collection of images was identified as having been part of a voluminous archive of torture and execution maintained by the Syrian government and smuggled out by a police photographer who defected and was given the code name Caesar."
  • You use Sunlit to "create stories that combine photos, location check-ins, and text. For trips, events, or any memories. You can share them with friends and everything syncs automatically."
  • What Hard Drive Should I Buy? details Backblaze's experience with consumer-level hard drives. Hitachi and Western Digital score well, although the current favorite is a Seagate.
  • aPhotoEditor has posted Professional Photographer Webcast Live: Social Media Marketing.
