Understanding Flickr

My first flickr picture.


I can't quite grasp it yet, but this appears to be an astonishing increase in personal capability: I can post, share, store, organize and tag anything I have in my stock photo files, and I can determine the level of sharing I wish to do with the asset. I can even sell it. The cooler part is this: I can acquire anything anyone else has shared.

This is apparently an example of what some call "web 2.0".
It is manifestly about collaboration, and to some extent, it is about trust.
