Flickr is a Car Crash
When I pop into the occasional discussion on flickr, I’m reminded that there’s no substitute for Real Life Conversations and that the online world (and this flickr thread in particular) continually misses the boat of intent, context, and reason. On all sides.
It’s like an accident-in-slow-motion, and there’s metal screeching and burning tires and everyone’s screaming, including the people who are watching, claiming they’re the victim.
Truly nothing to see here. Move along.
Update: Rather than deleting this post, which was intemperate and not to form, I thought I’d open up a transparent discussion on flickr about the surrounding issues.
