In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
The Secret Lives of Flowers

These are all shot using the macro ability of a Panasonic Lumix F200; most at the extreme end of the digital zoom range. None of the images has been edited, though two have been cropped (the honey bee and humming-bird moth images.)
My favorite is probably the image of the forget-me-not with a drop of water hanging from it. These flowers are tiny, about 1/4″ across, and I was about 6 feet from it to get this image.
