Late night thoughts on browsing the Iraq tag on Flickr

Here’s a thoughtful piece on the future of personal media publishing.

What happens when Iraqis start posting pictures on a (soon to be) popular photo portal where it is easy for Americans (geeks now, general populace to come soon) to find them? What happens when pro- and anti-occupation Iraqis start posting graphic pictures to make their points?

I subscribed FF Sage to the Iraq tag on Flickr.. it’s fascinating seeing the images popup in my aggregator!
