This week’s click spirals:
David Cranor: popcorn. Two varieties: butterfly and mushroom. And this explosive method of popping corn used by street vendors in China.
Jon Bruner: duplicate stock photos in advertisements, on book covers, and in campaign TV ads. iStockPhoto’s guidelines for contributors attest to the problem: too many people want to submit photos taken through airplane windows, of “single apples isolated on white,” and of “people doing nothing.” There’s a shortage of “corporate shots” and “people interacting,” so designers tend to recycle those images.
