I wonder if we should do something about George Oats' being fired by
yahoo (Read George's blog: http://george08.blogspot.com/2008/12/not-quite-what-i-had-in-mind.html
An open letter, maybe? I know, yahoo is a huge company and is none of
our business to question their "policy". I also don't think that they
are interested in the opinion of some cultural portal people from some
weird european Micro-States or even from Down-Under ;-) But honestly:
I try to buy organic and happy food, coffee from happy coffee
plantations, the same for bananas and so forth - I wonder if I should
keep posting my pictures on a website that is run by a company that
fires his employees in that nasty way ??? On top of that, I wonder
what will become the flickr commons project? Is it "safe" in terms of
sustainability? What if I talk some of our museums or the Edward
Steichen "Family of Man" photo collection into joining the project -
and then they just dump it?
What do you think of all this??
