America 24/7 Digital Photo Project -- If you're in the U.S. and want to participate in the largest collaborative photo project ever, check out the America 24/7 Web site. Coordinated by Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen, who are well known for their worldwide "Day in the Life" photography books and groundbreaking CD-ROM projects like "From Alice to Ocean" and "Passage to Vietnam," the America 24/7 project will attempt to document what it's like to be American in 2003, not just through the eyes and lenses of professional photographers, but also with the contributions of amateur digital photographers as well. Photos must be taken with a digital camera between 12-May-03 and 18-May-03, and individuals can upload up to seven photos via the Snapfish photo service (too bad Apple didn't get in on the project with a custom iPhoto export plug-in). You retain rights to all submitted photos, but be sure to read the requirements for participation carefully. [ACE]
Increase Boom Volume Quickly
If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.
