Friday links: privacy vs freedom of expression, guerrilla art, and cats
Some stories we’ve been reading this week:
- We’re kind of divided on which side to take on this one: New York City’s Supreme Court has upheld a photographer’s rights to exhibit and sell photographs he took of his neighbors without their permission.
- Guerrilla artists installed a bust portrait of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in Brooklyn park. Authorities quickly covered it up and removed it, then another artist group just as quickly replaced it with a hologram.
- Facepalm. This US Postal Service mistakenly releases a Maya Angelou stamp with a quote from another poet. Reminds us of a mishap from two years ago when the Irish bank misquoted James Joyce in a commemorative coin.
- Anyone who follows this blog knows we love animals and art, so we were thrilled by these photos of artists and their cats.
- And of course we were all over these famous buildings depicted as animals.
