Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

KODAKCoin

Didn't get on the Bitcoin gold rush? Fret not, Kodak comes to the rescue:

Quote:
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Kodak and WENN Digital, in a licensing partnership, announced the launch of the KODAKOne image rights management platform and KODAKCoin, a photo-centric cryptocurrency to empower photographers and agencies to take greater control in image rights management.

I think that is is going to be exciting for those who sell photos.
I've read the whole block-chain tech is going to be used for many other things outside of crypto-currency, but I can't even imagine how it will affect my life.

While I applaud the concept, the devil will be in the details.

Best,

NYSE - KODK:
- 9 Jan: $3.15
- currently: $10.85

News of porn industry switching to film and reintroduction of Kodachrome would probably move the stock a cent or two. Funny world we live in...

Of which there are none. I can't even find any information on Kodak's "licensing partner" WENN Digital. It's privately held and doesn't have a web presence.

Kind of silly. But you know what might be a great use blockchain technology? Copyright ID for photos. Anyone working on that?

I guess I'll be buying all the Tri-X and Double-X I plan to use for the rest of my life in the next few months, because I think this deal will put Kodak out of business for good.

Best,
-Tim
