Knowing that this blog begun in November 2006 has now reached its 100,000 visit left me speechless. I believe my first blogging experience was with Flickr in the fall of 2006. Since then I discovered the interconnectivity of a rhizome of 2.0 technologies.
Over the past few hours search engines sent visitors to this site to find answers for these queries: “Treaty Seven timeline” (2), Jennifer Naglingniq (1), “dangerous concepts for a business economy” (1), “ripples” (1), bringing the blog into six-digits.
I believe I uploaded this image to Flickr on October 22, 2006. By January 2009 25 people tagged this image as a favorite and it had been viewed 46, 003 times. Because it was one of the earlier images I posted in my Flickr account, once my free Flickr account hit the magic number of 200 images, this one and many others are no longer visible on my photostream. However, since it is well-tagged and linked to this blog and others, and has been highlighted and used by others through the Creative Commons Licensing, it is still being found through searches!
I know a pro account would bring these missing images back into the photo stream, but I do not want to take the risk of album deletions, etc. And my cyber experiment has been with open source and free accounts.
