I am so weak! The newest one is called the Warholizer
Now, I know where one of last week's Creative Commons Flickr photo entrants might possibly have gotten their inspiration.
I discovered this new tool during a discussion on the NTEN Affinity Group list for nonprofits and flickr about how to be efficient using flickr.
Mike Connery from OpportunityAgenda shared a fascinating project his nonprofit did in flickr in partnership with students in a media production class. The students had to create an image that was representative of the organization's core values and then create another image that another student could remix. We had some discussion about how the photos were licensed in creative commons to facilitate this remixing. Anyway, here's the flickr set.
Last night, I had a skype call with Mike Seyfang from Aussie land, who is trying to help educate us all about the subtleties of choosing a cc license and the tradeoffs/barriers of remix culture vs non-commercial use. We got to talking about how to propertly credit or attribute flickr photos that "BY" licenses. He said that it should be built into the interface. We both said, why doesn't flickr do that?
Well, the Warholizer has photo credit built in. Okay, so my question is what CC licenses on the flickr photos can I Warholize, attribute, and not feel guilty or get in trouble? So now that we now that the API can do it. Why doesn't Creative Commons have a flickr play tool that can do that? Why doesn't someone else hack one?
