The complexity was always there, even in the "good old days," it's just that it was under the FILM heading. Black and White or Color? Prints or Slides? 24 or 36 exposures? Fast or Slow? Single Prints or Double? 3 by 5 or 4 by 6 or 5 by 7 or 6 by 9? Proof Sheet? Jumbo Proof sheet? Borders or Borderless? Straight or Scalloped edges? Booklet? Slides Mounted or unmounted? Cut or rolled? Cardboard or Plastic mounts? . . .

The only thing wrong with "Turkey Man" is that it is the wrong perspective to be used as a screensaver :)
The little girl, for sure. The seminal moment when play becomes work. The "journey may be its own reward" but "work" is a means to an end. The first time this girl is empowered by that thought is captured here. On a mission to convert a plain beige world to pink!
Quodlibet or mash-up. Might also simply be called "two songs in counterpoint". A popular one at Christmas time is a combination of William Dix's "What Child Is This"(Greensleeves) and Scott Soper's "Child of the Poor" http://sojo.net/blogs/2012/12/20/what-are-you-singing-what-child-child-poor

April Fool's articles are supposed to be woven of whole cloth - not stitched together from fragments of genuine history - it makes it too hard on us while trying to decide how much of a fool we are. I refuse to fall for the ruse. Imagine, the designer of Zeiss Ikon cameras creating the Instamatic. Preposterous! Next thing you'll tell us is that he invented the IBM card and the photocopier!
A TED presentation from 2007 of the Microsoft effort mentioned by some others. http://www.ted.com/talks/blaise_aguera_y_arcas_demos_photosynth.html If you get tired by the computer talk - just jump to 4:00 into the video. "This is a reconstruction of Notre Dame Cathedral that was done entirely computationally from images scraped from Flickr. "
Thomas Pindelski has posted timings and file structures on his blog - iPad Camera Connection Kit.
It's as if, at the turn of the century, photography was considered artistically inferior to painting, so some enterprising photographer found a way to paint all over his images to make them look "artistic" -- i.e. like paintings. I am looking at a portrait on my wall from my grandparent's wedding in 1910 (I presume that is the century whose turning you are talking about.) It is all hand colored - including a bunch of flowers and furniture that I believe were not actually in the photo. There is also a photo of me from 1958 at my first Communion. It is also hand colored. I always just assumed that this hand coloring was driven by a desire for color. But your comments make me think this may have been an attempt for authenticity to mark important life events. For example, the detailing on the flower on my lapel clearly shows brush strokes. It is not an invisible attempt at adding color - the hand of the human artist is proudly apparent - and this style spans at least a half century!
Every time I have moved to a different part of the country I get a little culture shock in what is covered during the sports segment of the nightly news. When I moved to Boston it was the coverage of College hockey. Moving to Indiana it is both in-depth coverage of high school basketball (and not just during tournament time) and full coverage of auto racing - NASCAR, Indy, and F1 - with locally based color commentators.
Mike, What is the state of High School photo class technology. Is any work done with film and developing and optical printing (sort of like taking Latin)? Or is it all digital? If so, how much is photography and how much is PhotoShop?
A very breezy (but fulfilling) article on Wikipedia about Gary Stochl. This is a link to the specific version, it is so conversational in its personal viewpoint that it will no doubt get edited (or deleted) into pedia-ese in the future.

A lot more comments on Second City Cop from the boys-in-blue here: Bystanders Pummel Purse Snatcher They do their research and find out more stuff about the photog: Crime scene photographer finds himself on cops’ bad side BTW (according to comments in the link) the victim refused to sign a complaint and the shirtless man was Released With Out Charge (RWOC in one of the comments).
