Flickr value

One of the major values of Flickr is that it is a low-entry mechanism for making photos ‘citable’.
You can give them a URI, a handle, that can be copied and exchanged, and which makes it that much easier for them to enter the shared network space.
The ability to copy and share a URL for most pages is one of the ways in which Technorati, Google or Amazon differs from earlier generations of services.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
