Personal Life Annotation Devices

It’s not hard to imagine the power of millions of people each taking pictures and attaching them to physical places. You’re headed into Helsinki, and you want to see what the Esplanade looks like in mid-August. Or you wonder what the inside of the Intercontinental hotel looks like. | There’s immense potential for people to keep each other informed, or perhaps, misinformed. We all know the power of a picture to over-select, to crop, to be too specific and miss context important to other people on the scene. Now that potential is being democratized. —Justin HallPersonal Life Annotation Devices (The Feature)
