Flickr Controversy

How would you feel if your social tools weren't so social, deciding for you what you can and can't see? Unfortunately I don't have time to write this up properly, but there's a big controversy surrounding Flickr in Singapore, Germany, Korea, and other countries. Where are the protests taking place? On Flickr, of course. Fascinating viewing in a 2.0 world.

Keep in mind that in the context of restricting what you can view, this is what legislators are trying to do in this country's libraries. (Thanks, Kay)
