Community of photos (David Weinberger): “

Tim Bishop’s got a fascinating post about how the Iraq metatag at Flickr might affect politics and communities:

What happens when Iraqis start posting pictures on a … popular photo portal where it is easy for Americans … to find them? What happens when pro- and anti-occupation Iraqis start posting graphic pictures to make their points? What happens when we have an unmediated, high emotional impact, people-to-people conversation with video and pictures?

What indeed? As Tim suggests, if you want to know, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for the Iraq tag at Flickr.
