Resource The Legend – Spring 2018 Issue

So you want to be a legend, huh? Well before you embark on this quest—or continue your ascent—ask yourself this: do you actually know what that means?

The word is thrown around a lot. A popular YouTube prank is deemed “legendary,” while your old college friend declares herself a “legend” for that unspeakable thing she did at graduation back in the day. Surely this is not what we are referring to.

No, a legend is someone—like our cover model Albert Watson—who achieves something much greater than these one-time feats. Someone who stands the test of time and, in their own way, changes the course of history. A legend both awes us with their supra-human abilities, while inspiring us with their all-too-human back stories. Without legends, we’d all be running in circles, chasing our own tails.

But don’t take it from us. Take it from the legends we rounded up for questioning, ranging from the established (Mr. Watson), to the precocious (Mamadi Doumbouya), to those just on its cusp. By the time you’re done reading, expect to have twenty more Instagram accounts to follow, ten more photographers you’re dying to become friends with, and enough inspiration to last the rest of 2018. At least.

The Us Copyright Office Is Increasing Its Fees And Wants Your Comments

The U.S. Copyright Office is increasing its fees to cover modernization of its tech infrastructure and wants to hear your comments.

In a statement outlining the proposed changes, the Office said that public comments thus far “were generally supportive of increased fees for enhanced technological services.” Let them know if you agree.

The “fees” being referenced are incurred on users when sending an application to receive copyright. Importantly, these fees have never fully covered the Office’s costs. Instead, they’ve historically covered around 60% of costs, the rest coming from taxpayer dollars appropriated through Congress. This is important because a fee level that is too high results in less-than-optimal copyright claims; “potential users,” the report states, “w[ould] be unable or unwilling to pay.”

Still, the Copyright Office is, like many other governmental offices, in dire need of technological upkeep. The question is who will pay for it: taxpayers generally, or those employing the Office’s services. The answer will be a mix of both, but the exact split is up for grabs, and hence in need of your commentary.

After retaining consulting firm Booz Allen, the Office came up with a proposal of an average increase of 38% to all existing fees. A chart below lays out how these increases will be felt by different submitters.

As you can see, none of the fees cover the fully cost of providing the service, echoing the Office’s notion that “taxpayer support has an important role” in keeping copyright afloat in the US.

The Office also noted that it was keeping its fee for a “Single Application”—an application for “individual creators who file the simplest types of claims”—at an artificially low level ($55), representing, in their own words, a “significant subsidy…for smaller creators.”

Once again, this is only a proposal, and your own opinion—as a copyright user, or someone who appreciates someone who uses copyright to protect their work—is sorely needed. So exercise your democratic right and comment.

The entire report outlining proposed changes and the rationale behind them, meanwhile, can be found here.

Outing Of NBA Exec Shows The Internet

Bryan Colangelo is an executive for the Philadelphia 76ers, a popular NBA franchise. Apparently, he’s also the voice of five Twitter accounts who have been highly critical of, yes—the Philadelphia 76ers.

Hiding behind pseudonyms like Eric jr and Still Balling, the executive evidently thought the anonymity of social media would give him free reign to express opinions he could never share in public. Unfortunately, that anonymity turned out to be far less real than he thought; a fact which, as we shall see, should perhaps serve as a cautionary tale for the rest of us.

This isn’t the first time a celebrity has been caught defending themselves through fake social media accounts. Kevin Durant, also of the NBA, was exposed doing so a little while back when, evidently forgetting to switch accounts, he commented on his former team in the third-person.

This led many to believe he thought he was commenting from an anonymous account, a suspicion which was later confirmed. What makes Colangelo’s case special, however, is that there was no slip-up involved, and no blaming of hackers. Instead, he was discovered due to one simple, human fact: that as much as we may try to assume others voices and personas, a piece of us always remains.

A few months ago, a writer at sports site The Ringer received an anonymous tip (or at least anonymous until they are outed, too) claiming that they had discovered five Twitter accounts which they believed Colangelo was secretly operating.

An expert in artificial intelligence, the tipster claimed to have used “open-source data analysis tool[s]” to discover commonalities between the accounts. As the original piece explained, these were: discussing “the same topics”, using “strikingly similar phrasing”, and having “tweeted out identical media images.”

In addition, they found that many of the things Colangelo disparaged (such as one team’s choice of uniform) coincided with events he had attended in which he would be exposed to what he was commenting on. There were also some weird similarities which Colangelo surely did not mean to express, such as a “distaste for beards.”

Finally, all the accounts were highly critical of those who bashed Colangelo, while espousing support for the executive, calling him “a class act.” “There is no conceivable world,” the tipster concluded, “where [the person behind the accounts] is not Bryan Colangelo, himself”.

As you can imagine, this is highly embarrassing for Colangelo, and his own players have already begun tweeting in response. So let this serve as a reminder to us all: in the age of artificial intelligence and its linguistic analysis tools, nobody is really anonymous. Even on the internet.

Never Got To Experience New York In The 70S

The New York that existed during the 1970’s is often spoken of in folkloric terms, bringing up images of grit and glamour, as well as nostalgia for an era whose door has been irrevocably shut. For those of us too young to have experienced this New York of antiquity, it’s a good thing we have photographs.

The most recent artist to gain notoriety for his depictions of the period is Jeff Rothstein, a street photographer whose recently published book, Today’s Special: New York City Images 1969-2006 contains a treasure chest of candid images taken between those fateful years. The pictures provide an intimate window into the beauty and chaos of urban street life before gentrification had a chance to make its lasting marks.

To give you a taste of the sorts of images Rothstein captures, here’s one of three dirt-stained children using a lamppost and a mailbox as a makeshift jungle gym:

And here’s another of unspecified protestors donning riot gear helmets, fists raised defiantly in the air:

And finally, a shot of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, photographed as if they were any other anonymous couple strolling the streets of Manhattan:

As a native Brooklynite, it’s no wonder that Rothstein was able to paint such a vivid and loving portrait of the city he calls home. On his official website, the artist writes,

The entirely black-and-white series succeeds in eliciting a sense of ephemeral beauty and fondness for urban moments lost in time.
