My comment ...

For someone who calls themselves interested in the theory of relativity one does not expect to hear a phrase like ?interesting in this context may not be a universal truth.? ? Daoh! there is no such thing as universal truth, and certainly not universal interestingness.

In any case, thanks for the though provoking article. I repeated (your?) picture on my blog. I don?t think making money on re-aggregating and re-contexting information is a sin ? it is value added. You hit the nail on the head when you said:

source:
?Of course, if a person chooses not to have ads around their Flickr-based photographs, they have a method to ensure this: they can designate that all their photos are ?private?, in which case no one can see them, and they will never be interesting.?

? though remembering some of the other things you have said, I don?t know whether you have your tung in your cheek or not.
