A Flak Photo Discussion with Tom Griggs

Hey Photobook Fans!

Badger is a critic, curator, and photographer who — for over 30 years — has contributed essays to periodicals and books that shape our contemporary understanding of photography. Witty, scholarly, and highly readable, the essays touch on subjects from photobooks to Photoshop, using work from dozens of photographers to investigate themes that impact all of us as makers of and thinkers about photography.

This public discussion will provide a structured setting for reading the book and exploring its ideas. It will be a forum for expanding our understanding by reading collectively, a place for asking and answering questions and looking at how the book’s themes can be applied beyond the book itself.

All are welcome to join us in the conversation, which will be hosted in Flak Photo Books, a Facebook group designed to facilitate the collaborative exploration of new ideas in photography. Our first discussion kicks off on Monday, May 7, 2012 with the essay, "Literate, Authoritative, Transcendent: Walker Evans's American Photographs" (page 22).

– Publish2: “I am the Future of Journalism” Hiring Contest

"Publish2’s platform for link journalism is designed to help journalism thrive on the web. We are about the future of journalism. So why not make that the theme of the contest? And in the midst of layoffs across the news industry, what greater prize could we offer than a job?" explains Scott Karp, CEO of Publish2 .

The scoop is this:

"There have never been more talented journalists ready and eager to help chart the future of journalism. If you have the skills and desire to be a part of this great transition, you should have a job that will put you front and center.

Publish2 has launched the "I Am the Future of Journalism" Contest to help journalists like you get noticed. The prize is a job with Publish2, plus a $1,000 signing bonus. We’ll also get your entry in front of media companies, news organizations, journalism associations, and industry leaders who have their eyes on finding and grooming top talent.

Journalists of all ages, skill sets, and backgrounds are encouraged to enter."

The rules to enter are also straightforward:

  1. Create an entry that completes the phrase "I am the future of journalism because…"
    • Be creative! Use a video, slide show and/or text.
    • This isn’t about uploading your resume — it is about making a statement.
    • Video entries are limited to 60 seconds. Text entries have a 2,000 character limit.

"We wanted to do a promotion for Publish2, and thought first about a typical contest, e.g. win an iPod, win a laptop, etc. But we wanted to do something meaningful, something that would inspire people and be a positive force, especially during these tough times," says Karp. "This is also a creative way for journalists to promote themselves, regardless of whether they are interested in a job with a technology start-up. We are going to promote all contestants to the media companies that are looking for people to help guide them into the future. In addition to the contest, journalists can use their Publish2 profile page as an online resume to showcase their work and experience."
