Flickr Is Back, Letting Us Go Home Again | Gadget Lab |
It wasn’t just that we wanted yet another app update. It’s that we didn’t want to give up on what we already had. In short, we wanted to go home again.

Doc Searls Weblog · What if Flickr fails?
So I think we need to do two things here.

First is to pay more for what’s now free stuff. This is the public radio model, but with much less friction (and therefore higher contribution percentages) on the customers’ side. In ProjectVRM (at the Berkman Center) we’re working on that with EmanciPay. Here’s a way EmanciPay will help newspapers. And here’s our Knight News Challenge application for doing the same with all media sources. You can help by voting for it.

Second is to develop self-hosted versions of Flickr, or the equivalent. Self-hosting is the future we’ll have after commercial hosting services like Flickr start to fail. Fortunately, self-hosting is what the Web was meant to support in the first place, and the architecture is still there. We’ll have our own Flickrs and Zoomrs and Picassas, either on servers at home (ISP restrictions permitting) or in a server rack at the likes of RackSpace. But somebody needs to develop the software.

Breaking News: The Top 5 mistakes newspaper make when news happens « Breaking News
It ironic that our strengths - our staff, equipment, professionalism, high journalistic standards - all work against us in the early stages of breaking news. We're flooding the zone, gathering information, checking it, making decisions about the importance and depth of the story , while ordinary folks just want to see what's going on, share what they know and learn what they can.

The relatively impoverished newsrooms of the placeblogs means that they HAVE to tap the community for the first stage reporting.

We NEED to.

Lament for a Dying Field - Photojournalism -
“This is not a new trend; it’s the continuation of an old one,” said John G. Morris, a former photo editor whose résumé includes years at The New York Times (which publishes the International Herald Tribune), Life magazine and The Washington Post. “I’m 92 years old, and I’ve survived a lot of crises in photojournalism,” he said. “I find the present situation depressing, but I’m crazy enough to be hopeful. There have never been more images out there, and we need more help in sorting out all the information.”

Tribune Interactive Creates Photo Galleries Using Creative Commons Images from Flickr - Poynter Online - E-Media Tidbits
"For me, it was just a way of giving back a little," Wright said. "I've been online for years and seen lots of free media that really spoke to me, entertained me and in a few rare cases even moved me. So when I found out about Flickr I felt like to go Creative Commons was a way to pay it forward to the online community so that others could see my work and do what they would with it. Honestly, if I never sold a single work I'd still do it because I love it."

ReadWriteWeb: NYC Waterfalls: How Real-Time Cellphone Data Can Impact Local Economies
Overall the analysis of digital footprints showed the impact of the waterfalls, and how they drove people to new parts of the city over time. MIT says that this type of information can feed tourism studies and help a city to understand the behavior of people (tourists) who can have a large impact on the local economy. This type of data would also be useful for urban planning, of future events and attractions.

Nokia halts investment in media-sharing site by Reuters: Yahoo! Tech
Nokia has not unveiled usage numbers, but analysts say these have remained low due to draw of already established sharing sites such as Facebook or Yahoo Inc's Flickr.

"They definitely need to collaborate with Facebook instead of trying to replace it. Same thing with Twitter and Flickr," Kuittinen said.

Flickr Creates New License for White House Photos | Epicenter
The change marks a first for Flickr, which to date has not had a license for government works, other than a “No Known Copyright Restriction” license that is used on photos from its Commons project, which includes photos from some of the world’s greatest museums and libraries. Those photos include ones from the Library of Congress, for instance, that never were copyright since they were made or paid for by the federal government

Creative Commons on Flickr: Users Prefer Restrictive Licenses - ReadWriteWeb
Flickr now holds the world's largest repository of Creative Commons-licensed images, but according to a new study, most Flickr users opt to license their images under the most restrictive CC license. Also, only a relatively small number of users (24%) allow commercial use of their images, and only about 12% of users choose the BY license, which allows for free sharing and remixing, as long as the author is attributed.
