Lynette Webbs’ Interesting Snippets Flickr Set came to me via UPS delivery, in print form, ordered from LuLu. This is the first on demand print product I bought, and am impressed with it from concept to product.
This set of slides is impressive to me for many reason, as powerful examples of communication via words and pictures equally, of using creative commons licensed images, but also just of simple, pure creativity.

How neat was it to rip open a UPS shipping box and find a lovely color print booklet that was generated at some point from a set of images in flickr! Go ahead and poke fun at my expense for getting excited over analog media. I am enjoying the feel of paper.
And I have to come back to what might be done as a teaching tool for whay Lynnette creates- take a cc licensed photo, edit in text overlays that are not there to caption the image, but to make a statement the image supports (and now you can do this text overlay right in flickr using PicNik). But there is more than just the final image- she composes several paragraphs of supporting text, with hyperlinked references.
if you are having students generate visual communication in PowerPoint, the clue train has long left the station. But you can stil get aboard.
And to some sense I would argue this is blogging via flickr, something that is surprisingly rare (I am convinced sometimes that 45% of flickr is IMG567.JPG lacking any caption).
