Small business attorney?

From: Jason Griffey 
Hey all...

It's a little off topic, but enough of you have your own business that I
thought it might be useful to ask...does anyone have a business attorney
they would recommend? I have my own LLC, but with recent events I think I
may need a different structure for my business (technology consulting and
invention). I'd love to find someone that actually understands tech but can
advise on how best to manage my business in TN.

Any suggestions welcome! Thanks.

OT: Need pocket-able camera suggestions

From: Lynn Dixon 
Hey folks, I know there are some amatuer photographers and media people
here on the lug, so I am asking for some suggestions.

I will be travling to Cuba in April for a week as part of a study abroad
program.  Our travel advisors have asked us to limit our technology when we
go.  Especially laptops and phones.  So, I will be leaving all my
electronic goodies in a locker in Miami.

However, they did say we could bring a camera, but to be cautious with it.
I don't think I want to take my expensive DSLR and its lenses, but I want
to get some good photos while I am there, since its a rare experience.

I am looking for good suggestions for a easy to carry camera, (think easy
to put in a pocket) that has good battery life (outlets are hard to come by
in Cuba) and one that I can easily swap SDcards in.  I will have to take
enough SD cards to store the photos until I return to the US since I won't
be taking my laptop.  We have also been told to expect any SDcards and
other data storage devices to be confiscated at customs and their contents
copied before being returned to us, so I don't want anything to cause
problems with that (hence the reason I am not taking my laptop).

Do you have any suggestions as to where I should start my search?

Free Software Photo Galleries

From: "Robert A. Kelly III" 
Hash: SHA512

I wondered if anyone is familiar with a free software photo gallery
that offers facial recognition and tagging similar to most online
services (either natively or via a plugin)? To be clear, I'm talking
about server software to make a photo gallery available over the web.

I'm also curious if you know of any good photo galleries that offer
the option of storing your photos as files on the file system, instead
of in a database.
