Last week when I blogged that won the Creative Commons flickr photo contest, the prize I got was Lessig's on my answering machine. And, I just got an even better gift. In today's email, J Wynia, shared with me a tool he created with the Flickr API that lets me search for interesting photos that I can remix or use and automatically generates the attribution. Yeha!
Given your recent discovery of the "by" CC license and your recent inclusion of photos under that license from Flickr on your posts, I thought you might like to know about a tool I built a while ago that searches through Flickr CC-licensed photos based on "interestingness". I use this tool to find pretty much all of my post photos.
This is the value I get from blogging - the ability to connect with other people around a common interest. Yet, I wonder if this is a compelling enough reason for those work in nonprofits?
