Walking up Brunswick St on Wednesday morning I found a recent car crash, and once I realised no one was hurt, I became a simple voyeur. Not the only one, apparently, because virginiam has already put some pictures of the crash on Flickr. This is the power of social media – instant, online, and particularly powerful in being locally focused. Because the Flickr RSS feed my blog pulls uses the tag ‘Fitzroy’ I find photos of an event I witnessed appear on my blog before I am able to upload my own photos of the event.
