Picture this

Just a brief note to remind you of the Polling Place Photo Project at Whether you can vote in Boston or not, I really encourage you to participate in this experiment in pro/am citizen journalism. I'm going to give it a try. Although I can't find a list of polling places online, I did find a search engine that will give you the polling place for any address in Massachusetts. Or you can call the Boston Election Department at 617-635-3767. But that seems so old-fashioned.

I hope to show what a few of you uploaded in class next Wednesday.

As we also discussed, you can search for photos and other creative works that you can use in your blogs at Creative Commons. This is an innovative way for copyright-holders to let members of the public know that they can re-use their work as long as they follow certain rules.

Finally, here is the Oregonian presentation on Lovelle Svart's life and death that Eleni Himaras shared with us today. And here is the F-Stop Journal, part of BU's Daily Free Press, which Jessica Torrez-Riley demonstrated last Wednesday.
