the scanned text needs to be manipulated with word processing software to reset the fonts and improve the appearance of the text
No, really, at the scale that this is happening, the scanned text actually needs to be converted into TEI using some sane heuristics. It's a world-wide problem that needs a reasonable (less-)semi-(more-)automatic solution, not millions of people unsystematically fiddling in their word processors.
Wow -- your last post said "mid to late 80s" and now it could have been up to 1996. That's more than a decade, and you can't be more accurate about when you bought what you said was your first hard drive?
Obviously, he calculated it on the Pentium box he put the disk into.
Your facebook / flickr photo galleries are not journalistic expression.
Well, you can delude yourself with that, if you want to. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of the United States has proclaimed that "First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkable". In light of that, I'd like to see you arguing to the judge that just because I wrote my article on Google+ and posted source photos on Imgur, that somehow makes my piece of investigative reporting "not journalistic expression".
If you take a snapshot of me, and I find it on your Flickr account, I can have it taken down.
Try to do that with a newspaper photo, wise guy. Also, nobody should have this right with Flickr if it's unfeasible with other media. It's the same kind of bullshit as demanding that writers shouldn't be allowed to write a news portrait if you don't want them to. Libel aside, that used to be protected. (But yes, I'm sure politicians would jump on that.)
Actually, as any professional photographer can tell you, in most countries you're not allowed to use someone's image without a modeling release.
Except that TFA talks about taking photographs. In most countries, you can apparently either ask people later, or edit them out, or simply leave some of the photos unpublished. If I were to go with how I understand what the new Hungarian law means, you're not even allowed to edit stuff out, you have to painstakingly take care that it won't get into material in the first place, or you'll have instacrime if you notice someone in the frame and decide to go with it anyway.
I'm not a big fan of cops, but that was justifiable IMO. The guy clearly looks like he is advancing on the police with what looks like a rifle
You have a strange definition of "advancing" and "looks like a rifle".
I know from watching US cop shows that you generally stay in the car when pulled over.
Well of course, if anything else gets you automatically shot! Ah, the world-wide cultural diversity...
