United States copyright regulators are agreeing with Wikipedia’s conclusion that a monkey’s selfie cannot be copyrighted by a nature photographer whose camera was swiped by the ape in the jungle. The animal’s selfie went viral. The US Copyright Office, in a 1,222-page report discussing federal copyright law, said that a “photograph taken by a monkey” is unprotected intellectual property.

Today’s top book news item:
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s rough memoir of frontier life, which served as the basis for her Little House on the Prairie series, will be published this fall as Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. The Associated Press reports, “The not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey,” adding, “Wilder and her daughter Rose Wilder Lane, herself a well-known author, tried and failed to get an edited version of the autobiography published throughout the early 1930s.” It will be published by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press.
on a muuuuuuuuch lighter note, i went to an adult gymnastics class last night and it was great.
plus, i got to watch all the circus people train while we learned which was worth at least half the cost.
so here’s your ramble and psa for going to the dermatologist:
dark spot on my chest gets darker. nurse sister and friend who’s had many spots cut off harass me to go to derm. finally get derm recommendation and go. derm immediately says “yeah, i’m taking it all. i expect this to be melanoma. i’ll call you by the end of the week.” two shots, three stitches, dark spot cut off in full.
call my dad who promptly freaks out and freaks me out. cry. wait 24 hours. wonder how people handle far far more terrible cancer diagnoses. contemplate own mortality. drink wine.
answer phone call. hear bad news with good implications. melanoma but relatively shallow and defined. hear need for follow up and name of plastic surgeon. prepare for possibility of lymph node dye test. call parents. digest being 28 with a malignant diagnosis. be greatful for all above mentioned people in my life.
