In the conservative town of Liberal, Kansas,

the self-proclaimed Land of Oz, teenaged girls

can land a job being Dorothy, dressing up and

leading tours at the local museum. In a town

where the fantastic stands out in stark contrast

to the banal, ‘Being Dorothy’ explores the

restlessness of the female teen spirit, trapped

without a mall, where the main employer is a

slaughterhouse, and sustained by hopes that

lie way over the rainbow.

Perversion, debauchery, creativity, these made

for a decadent brew in the Berlin of the 1920s

and 30s. Known as the “sex capital of Europe”

it was a time of intense sexual experimentation

and artistic creativity. Berliners embraced this

new permissiveness with total abandon.

Hi,

I would like to let you know, that due to the censorship debate, which emerged in the aftermath of the introduction of content filters, I will become less active here on flickr and ultimately let my pro account lapse as a statement of protest against these latest measures. To be more accurate, this is rather meant to target Yahoo! than flickr, although the latter haven’t exactly earned credits in handling this incident.
Nonetheless, I will keep my account open for the time of the transition and I hope that many of you, whom I have met and begun to value as real friends, will visit me at my new home. But honestly, at this moment much of the initial enthusiasm over meeting people and making friends through photography has suffered substantially… It is not as much due to Yahoo! doing a lame job in responding to local laws or flickr receding to their position of "We aren’t allowed to say more", it’s also due to a notable general increase in attempts of large corporations and also governments to exert more control over their "netizens"/web users. Google isn’t much better than Yahoo! and iPernity will have to prove itsself. I’m trying not to get paranoid, but their are attempts under way in my country to pass a law that will enable authorities to force providers to disclose their users’ personal account data on request. What ultimately comes of that can be seen in the Shi Tao case, who is now rotting away for 10 years in a Chinese prison.
Like I said: I’m trying my best not to become paranoid, but it appears as if forces bigger than the communities that formed and form on the web, are in the process of gaining as much data and control as possible. While this doesn’t come as a surprise, it feels like "losing innocence" and hence losing a lot of the fun.

OK, I’m done with my little political speech – hope to see you over there and thanks for being friends with me, for your support so far, your encouragement and for – being you…
Werner
