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 World Backup Day, that Nikon D300 replacement, a video/still tripod head solution and Facebook courting news sites.

We're one of the four people who back up our data. In our case, every day we change something on it (so we tend to rest on Sunday like other creators). If you need a little inspiration, revisit our Our Secret Backup & Archiving Strategy In Action and Devising a Backup Strategy.

  • Thom Hogan has returned. In The Missing D300s Replacement, Redux, he explains why D300 owners haven't been tempted by the current lineup and what they really want.
  • Kirk Tuck solves the video fluid head problem (you can't shoot vertical using a fluid head) with a $245 Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5.
  • In Facebook May Host News Sites' Content, the authors begin, "Nothing attracts news organizations like Facebook. And nothing makes them more nervous." We hit to the opposite field on that topic. We don't find attractive a gated community for inmates who just don't get the Web. And it doesn't make us nervous. You know where to find us.

More to come...
