Wired Blog: 27B Stroke 6
A Wired Blog used a photo from my Flickr for a story on the MPAA and Pre-texting. My use of a CC-license allows them to do that, of course. It would sure be interesting to find out how they settled on that particular photo of a percussionist in a cafe in Newcastle, Australia, for a story on the MPAA and California lawmakers. It does seem to fit. Did the author do a global tag search in Flickr? Did somebody happen to notice the photo while browsing? Dave looks great in that photo. Maybe he should be in movies.

    Davo! That picture brought a smile to my face. I wonder why that particular photo for that particular story, though…

    …or stage.

    Adam, leave the pointer on the photo of the Wired Blog. They have a note there that suggests why they picked the pic.

    Ottmar –

    Thanks for licensing that photo. I searched using the terms 14 and number, IIRC.

    There were other 14s, but I liked your photo the best.

    Thanks again and hopefully I’ll have a chance to plunder your images in the future.

    Ryan –

    Plunder away! I love seeing them get used.

    The note that appears when your mouse is placed over the pic is an alt tag. ALT tags are a *must* on all websites. The tags allow visually impared people to read the websites.
