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 a data processing contest, helping Lightroom find your photos, free photos at the San Francisco Marathon and a 15th anniversary.

  • Roger Cicala has opened A Data Processing Contest to graph raw data from his new optical bench. And there are actual prizes. We're hoping Edward Tufte enters.
  • Julieanne Kost addresses one of Lightroom's biggest mysteries in two recent posts: Why Can't Lightroom Find My Photos and Why Can’t Lightroom Find My Folders of Images?. Once you know the trick, there's no mystery.
  • The San Francisco Marathon has partnered with Gameface Media to provide free photos of race participants. Gameface Media "will deploy a skilled team of professional photographers to shoot memorable images that runners can easily download and share through all major social media platforms." If you can call running 25 miles "free."
  • The Luminous Landscape celebrates its 15th anniversary with its front pages from each of the last 15 years. "As for the future," the editors write, "we are excited about our plans for further development of the site and expansion of its content and coverage."

More to come...
