Interestingness

Flickr: Explore interesting photos from the last 7 days in FlickrLand…

I don’t like this. Flickr’s new interestingness option seems to bring up a lot of clip art.

Each picture feels poised like a magazine ad. I want blurry and low-res and well done

and everything else. It’s a little disturbing to find that so many of the pictues deemed

interesting by their algorithim turn up as what are essentially magazine shots, you can

almost feel the photoshop filter sliding off of them. A little grease and wear wouldn’t hurt.

I’m sure as this function becomes popular and people figure out the combination of links,

trackbacks, views, and comments… it will get more monotenous, becuase those people suck to begin with.

Anyway, maybe something decent will pop up. BTW check the new orleans shots I found. It’s really rather amazing.
