Library of Congress releases 11,700 freely usable photos of "roadside America," taken by John Margolies / Boing Boing
For decades, architectural critic and photographer John Margolies obsessively documented roadside attractions: vernacular architecture, weird sculpture, odd businesses and amusements. By his death in 2016, his collection consisted of more than 11,000 slides (he published books of his favorites, with annotations).

The Library of Congress purchased the Margolies archive and has released it to the public domain, with hi-rez scans of 11,710 slides.

“The search-tool on top of the page makes it possible to search for over 200 routes in South East Asia. Mainly Vietnam, but also Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines. Thanks to the sliders, I can see in a few seconds how many stop-overs each transport option and how long it takes. Once I decided which option is best for me, I use their detailed guides to know which company is best to book with and where the company will pick me up and drop me off.”

Each of these paper atlases covers a single state. The front section divides the state up into regional maps that list recreational opportunities — for Washington there are about ten. Though the real beauty happens in the detailed “Landscape” pages. Each spread (19”x13.5”) shows an area about 60 miles x 50 miles. They’re exceptionally clear and easy to read. In places like national forests, the maps will delineate the difference between a trail, 4×4 road, dirt road, or paved road. In my overlanding experience they’re much more useful and easy to read than USGS maps.

After running a series of scientific studies, we've discovered a specific set of practical, yet rarely-asked, questions that 83% of people reported were valuable for them to answer and 78% said they would recommend to others. The Life-Changing Questions deck is the result.

The questions in this deck can be used to generate insights and focus a process of self-reflection, spark conversation and connection with acquaintances or strangers, and deepen your connections with the people you care about.

Copyright Renewals - Spotlight at Stanford
Stanford's Copyright Renewal Database is a searchable index of the copyright renewal records for books published in the US between 1923 and 1963. Note that the database includes only renewal records, not original registrations, and only Class A (book) renewals received by the US Copyright Office between 1950 and 1992.

The period from 1923-1963 is of special interest for US copyrights, as works published after January 1, 1964 had their copyrights automatically renewed by statute, and works published before 1923 have generally fallen into the public domain. Between those dates, determining whether a work's registration was renewed as required has been a challenge. Renewals received by the Copyright Office after 1977 are searchable in an online database, but renewals received between 1950 and 1977 were distributed only in a semi-annual print publication which has not been made searchable. The Copyright Renewal Database brings those records together in a searchable format.

The full data set for the Copyright Renewals Database is available for download.

An open-source text substitution tool for Windows.

Beeftext allows you to define combos. A Combo associates a short word that you are unlikely to type in a normal situation (a keyword) with a piece of long or complex text you often need to type (a snippet). From now on, every time you type the keyword, in any text area of any application that support copy/paste (99.9% of them do), the combo is triggered and Beeftext automatically replaces the keyword by its associated snippet. Thanks to Unicode encoding, this text can be in any language, using any kind of characters, even exotic ones.

Based on Text Expander.
