If this is as good as it implies, it is a radical change for photography. Suddenly what matters is not the equipment you're carrying but rather the power of the computing you have at your disposal. It also opens up a can of worms as the implementation space - presumably covered by a wealth of patents globally - moves from hardware to software.

Really excellent advice here on how to handle customer engagement. As one of the comments says this is a typical profile - both of attitude and skill - for a community manager, and that's a job that is undervalued by some and in hot demand by others. I've used B&H off and on for many years, both in their quirky New York store and online, and every time has been a good thing.
On a related note, if you are a community manager looking for a job, send me an e-mail with your background explaining why - I have a small list of people hunting for the perfect person to hire.

This is a very worrying development that looks like an abuse of power. It's extending the law surely beyond where it was ever intended by lawmakers and then being supported by courts. One of these cases will need to make its way to the Supreme Counrt. There's just as worrying a trend in the UK, of police using massively heavy photographic activity against the public while unjustly restricting photography by the publoc.

"As copyright laws get more ridiculous, we're teaching people to not move forward if they don't know for sure -- and that can create a massive stifling of creativity and expression." -- This is the reason we need to turn back the trend expressed by the Digital Economy Bill. As Kevin Marks suggests, it's creating a digital economy the same way the Locomotive Bill created a transportation system.

"Quick, define irony: the BBC, one of the main proponents of a bill to allow them to use other people’s images in ways they didn’t envisage without permission or payment, is furious that somebody has taken a BBC image and used it in a way the BBC didn’t envisage without permission or payment." -- Section 43 of the Digital Economy Bill is a travesty of justice for photographers, from amateurs-on-iStockPhoto like me all the way up.

Yes, another posting from me about the Digital Economy Bill. As I keep saying, this bill is about more than just disconnection. Clause 43 sounds fair enough - putting "orphan works" where the copyright owner can't be found into the public domain sounds a good thing. But it has been badly constructed, presumably with input from lobbyists with skewed interests.
It will have the side effect of making all photographs public domain unless they are painfully obviously marked with the photographer's identity. When you write to your MP, ignore disconnection; complain about clause 43, about the threat to open WiFi and about the apparently corrupt avoidance of democratic process. Oh, and write today, we're running out of time.
