It’s an amazing photograph. The things you can do with it, how you wander round, the power of the zoom, the quality of the photograph, the sheer usability of the tools. [My retarded hippie roots showed up very soon. The first thought that came into my mind was “I wish I could have delved into the Sgt Pepper cover this way”, soon followed by thoughts about Woodstock.]
It’s all changing. Digital objects and how they become social, as Hugh Macleod kept teaching us. How the social object, having entered conversation, creates markets, as the Cluetrain guys kept reminding us. How those markets work and expand using social software, as tools like Twitter show us. How more and more tools are becoming available to do all this.
And how the Web is at the heart of all this change.
Web changes everything.
Incidentally, talking about non-web: Can you imagine the chaos if people attached this photo to their email and sent it around that way?
