Capture the moment

by Volker Weber

As I was looking through the more than 1700 pictures tagged with Lotusphere2007 on Flickr, I could not help but notice:

Review your pictures. Please.

Comments

You can add to the list:
- An Orlando Magic game is not part of Lotusphere 2007
- We do not care what your room number was.

Ed, sorry, but I think doesn't really meet the general notion of tagging. Isn't it part of the idea, that anyone can label content with the tags that he/she associates with the content? If this particular person now associates his/her experience of watching the Magic with his/her attendance of Lotusphere, wouldn't it then be perfectly fine and absolutely in the sense of tagging?

And as far as the room number goes, well that probably would fit under vowe's first note, just as his second and third would as well. ;-)

May I add another item to the list:
- If you can, please identify the people in the picture. Names to faces is a good thing (unless you are there without a shirt, but then, everyone knows who you are regardless). :-)

Gregg Eldred, 2007-01-26

Forget shirts. I just want to know who the dude with a frying pan for a face is? ;-)

There used to be a time when "Let me take your photo" did not automatically mean "I will post your photo on the internet". Now that everyone has a cameraphone and webspace and that "everyone is doing it anyway", many people don't seem to think about this any more. In certain spaces, like some clubs, it already appears to be an entirely alien concept. Depending on the situation, I consider putting my portrait on the web unaskedly rather rude behaviour, even more so if it is nametagged. Then again, I am also wondering how little many people are caring about privacy on the web, so I might sound a bit old-fashioned here.

@Ragnar, Good questions...IMHO, it's easier for the user to find and categorize and associate pictures for personal reasons using Sets. Tags are for sharing with others, and should be more specific to the tag, so I agree with Volker.

Volker, Good job! We need tag police on Flickr! And when you're done with Lotusphere2007, could you start in on all the other tags?

Re point 2: I bet Bill loves it :o)

Seriously though, as someone who’s been lapping up all the pictures and news coming out of Orlando (* sob *) I truly appreciate the diligence in capturing every single moment. However, I also agree that a little editorial control wouldn’t be a bad thing. I took quite a lot of pictures last year, but most didn’t make it to Flickr!

Ben Poole, 2007-01-26

haha, we allneed to know that Bill can take off his shirt at the pool and be a man about it. even when not swimming. Then again, I wouldnt take a picture of my room number.

I did have quite a few I didn't upload. But for the most part I let it fly.
