When emerged to surface in a couple of kilometres from the destination today I thought of taking a bus from the station first but frightened by the length of the queue I only took a photo of the place and decided to walk instead.
Later I was contacted by CNN iReport producer in connection with those photos taken while walking to office - she had found my pics on Flickr and then called my mobile.
As a result, here is the post: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-489207
Speaking of which, it made think of big brands adopting social content. The first thought of every lucky amateur is to agree, and only few can resist the anticipation - myself I certainly couldn't this time. On the first glance it is a win-win situation for either side, but on the other hand people deliver the product to corporations while nothing in the internet really makes them to - unlike the real world, internet provides an opportunity to reach every author if you really want that without a middleman involved. Still, people easily sacrifice their independence for things that hardly really matter letting others speak on their behalf.
Please don't misunderstand me - I don't mean that "people are robbed" or something of that kind. Pics and stories like these are really cheap (if worth anything at all) even if made by a professional. What I mean is that it is not necessary to share using the corporal services while we don't really need them to communicate, even after the real net anarchy has surely ended.
