Flickr adds Geotagging option

This new feature from flickr just continues the trend towards emplacing data.  Geotagging is just another form of organizing data – using the world as file cabinet.  It takes the abstraction of maps, or what I’ve called metageography, and replaced it with a sense of locality.  It’s like always knowing where that scrap of paper is.
