Gay Hookup App Must Pay $240,000 For Leaving Private Photos Exposed
After leaving users’ private photos exposed for more than a year, the gay dating and hookup app Jack’d has to pay out, literally. The app’s owner Online Buddies has agreed to cough up $240,000 in a settlement with the New York attorney’s office for their negligence with the sensitive data of 7,000 New York users.
As Out reported in February, Jack’d updated the app to close the loophole discovered by cybersecurity researcher Oliver Hough that allowed people to access supposedly private photos uploaded to Jack’d. While reports, at the time said that Hough had emailed Jack’d three months prior, he revealed to Out via screenshots that the emails dated back a year. Jack’d and Online Buddies did not take any action until after Hough went to the press. British tabloid The Register first broke the story.
Who Should Own Photos of Slaves? The Descendants, not Harvard, a Lawsuit Says
The two slaves, a father and daughter, were stripped to the waist and positioned for frontal and side views. Then, like subjects in contemporary mug shots, their pictures were taken, as part of a racist study arguing that black people were an inferior race.
Almost 170 years later, they are at the center of a dispute over who should own the fruits of American slavery.
The images of the father and daughter, identified by their first names, Renty and Delia, were commissioned by a professor at Harvard and are now stored in a museum on campus as precious cultural artifacts.
But to the Lanier family, they are records of her personal family history. “These were our bedtime stories,” Shonrael Lanier said.

Meet the French artist creating stunning 3D images of muscle men
A French illustrator and computer artist is picking up a big following with his incredible images of muscle-bound guys. Alex Bronnings is more commonly known under his Albron moniker.
Aged 43, he was born and raised in the west of France, but now lives in Paris.
He tells GSN that he studied at the Beaux-Art school in Nantes: ‘But it was a very traditionalist art school, nothing about digital illustration, and nothing about 3D… Well, It was at the end of the 90’s so 3D software was not so common or affordable!’
‘I started learning 3D in 2010 during the subprime crisis, as most of my clients from events agencies were stopping their activities.’
