Play is integral to this thing we call "work" in the new net space, not bounded by walls, old rules of behavior, etc. Where is the carefully drawn line between work and play?

Note- this was a quick and dirty attempt to see if I could really create something akin to the Interesting Snippets collection by LynnetteR. The edits were done by the flickrCC tool – a search and edit flickr web app. It finds flickr images that allow modifications and provides a basic web editing interface. It’s not exactly easy to use (note my typo and sloppy spacing), but I was able to do all the image editing in a browser.
A right/apple click on the image allowed be to save a new copy of the image, which was then uploaded back to flickr.
So it may be possible to run this as a workshop, and not delve into any photo editing desktop software. The image play is not the goal- it is the deciding on a topic, researching the quote and data, and then locating the image that "speaks" to an idea.
A play at using some flickr tools, testing grounds for potential workshop. Stay tuned!
