breakfast: coffee & apple tart from polka. this was great, but i wasn’t really paying attention to it but was busy reading this about pinterest. i think everybody should read it and be aware why its business model is fraud and of the risks you are subject to upon pinning other people’s images.
snack: earl grey & carrot cake
late lunch: miso soup (potato, green onion, seaweed) & avocado natto don
dinner: coffee & bagel with cream cheese and honey
I see more and more people are taking my images from this blog and pinning them on their Pintest accounts. Please do not do that. (This, not to mention, goes for Tumblr users or any other people who post my images somewhere else without ever bothering to ask for my permission.) With Pinterest what you are doing is basically claiming that you have the rights to those images, which you don’t, and giving away the rights to sell those images to Pinterest at their disposal. Does it seem legal to you? And if the *real* owners of the images decided to take legal actions, it’d be you who will be solely accountable for it, not Pinterest. Very fishy.
Stupid TV has begun to show footage of 3.11, gearing up for the first anniversary. It’s not easy…I can’t imagine what it must be like for the people in the tsunami-affected region.
