One-eyed Orbital Snake writes "Interesting essay in the NYT magazine (free login, yadda yadda) on commercial 1m resolution satellite photos, with the Sept. 24 launch of Space Images' Ikonos. Not much new, but well written and all in one place. References Clarke's 2061, Brin's Transparent Society, and ties it all up with a heartwarming 1st Amendment ribbon. Definitely worth a read."
