The last BC (Hooray to the super duo of Ally P and Nyein) suggested we explore images. Good idea.
If you learn only one thing from me, ALWAYS SOURCE images. In today’s world of cameras everywhere, fast networks, and social sharing, images are everywhere. And they can be powerful communications. But to use one that is unsourced is the mark of laziness or ignorance.
So, here is your task. Think about your white paper topic. Find an image (preferably a photo, but a cartoon or a very good data visualization can work), share it on our blog and write one paragraph about what it conveys, why you picked it, and of course, provide a credit as to where it came from.
How to find an image?
Google images is not bad. But there are better options for focused searches.
CC search is a portal to search a variety of very good cc (creative commons license, an alternative to copyright) archives like Flickr, wikimedia and others.
Fireshot is a great Firefox extension for doing screen captures including just parts of a webpage. If you use Mac and Chrome, I saw this article of good screen capture apps.
