A brief happy moment in my morning: NASA has put onto Flikr thousands of photos from the "Project Apollo Archive. They are organized into albums by Apollo mission numbers and include hundreds of images never before seen by the public. All free, in the public domain - our tax dollars at work.

The MIT Architecture School (of which I am, technically, a graduate) is collaborating on an exhibition on the topic of copying and copyright in architecture.

Called Un/Fair Use the event opened last month and runs until January 2, 2016 at the Center for Architecture of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

In Un/fair Use, models of common, and therefore uncopyrightable, tropes and formal themes are juxtaposed with those protected under the Architecture Works Copyright Protection Act of 1990.

I don't presently have plans that take me to NYC - if anyone does go and see this I'd love to hear what you think of it.
