Let us reflect on how complete and generous the Smithsonian’s release of millions of images is: 1) CC0; 2) easy-to-use API; 3) full metadata available in GitHub; 4) IIIF viewer + portability; 5) images are downloadable at very high resolution. This is a great model—kudos to SI.

CCTV cameras don't deter crime, so why does Ottawa want them? | Canadian Lawyer
In 2007, David Murakami Wood, currently Canada Research Chair in Surveillance Studies at Queen’s University, helped write a report on the spread of CCTV for Britain’s information commission. Murakami, then at Newcastle University, told the New York Times that, “the idea of CCTV as a deterrent for something like this is no longer accepted.”

May T.S. Eliot letters send an overdue #MeToo message (opinion) - CNN
Take American poet Robert Lowell, for instance. Recently-released correspondence between Lowell and his ex-wife Elizabeth Hardwick show how he used unauthorized quotations from her private letters to him as a foundation for his 1973 poetry collection, "The Dolphin."
"The Dolphin" and its reviews "hurt me as much as anything in my life," Hardwick wrote when she read the poems and saw what Lowell had done. He had not merely used her letters, he had taken bits and pieces of them, added his own fictive words to her real ones. Lowell the poet used the literary and emotional material gathered up by Lowell the ex-husband. The license to appropriate was largely permitted in the service of poetry, as presumably was the pass Lowell received after punching his first wife, Jean Stafford, in the face.

Agile as Trauma — Dorian Taylor
Except software isn’t like a car at all: if anything it’s more like a university campus, where different buildings are complete artifacts in their own right but loosely couple together to form a unified service. It is perfectly reasonable for some parts to be undergoing construction while others are being planned. Taken as a whole at any given moment, some parts of the system will have more detail and others will have less. Our notions of iteration and incrementality therefore have to also make room for media other than code.
