I have a love/hate relationship with technology. Especially with the ones that I have to wear in my body, but that's another story. This post is about the love side of technology. Check out this AMAZING app for the incredible site, flickr. Type in a word, like diabetes, and then watch the aggregate of all the photos from flickr that have the tag diabetes attached to it, appear before your very eyes. This is an amazing open source, democratic view of what people think when they add the tag diabetes to their photos. I think this is SO cool.
And of course, you don't have to just type in diabetes. Try flowers or birds or shoes. Oh my, there are billions of images out there, and some of them are very good. Flickr's a bit like Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole for me. But it's fun and it sure beats trying to watch CSI to relax!
