A Little Trouble In The Pearl

Walking home from work I saw a truck in an odd position. The shipping container had slid off the truck, probably as it was turning. The driver seemed pretty embarrassed, he was inside covering his face, and their was a crowd of people all taking pictures with their camera phones! I’ve seen so many camera phones, and it made me kind of excited. If their was a good way to share these images (Flickr?), then no event in America would go undocumented. While that raises a few concerns, it’s also a gives a lot of power to the people.

    You can send your cameraphone pics to flickr. Multimedia Messaging aka MMS aka Picture Messages are treated as SMTP e-mails – flickr gives you an e-mail address to send your pics to for posting under your user profile. Voila! on T-Mobile it costs 25 cents per mms or $3/month for unlimited photos.

    If someone created a photcentric blog of image news, then we’d have a blog of photos set up to monitor for all photocaptured events. It would need an editor or moderator, though, otherwise everyone who thinks their cat puking is news would post such drivel.
