Baby Henrik, Forbes, and The Future of Photo Sharing

August 15, 2013

I haven’t written in a few weeks. That’s not exactly out of the ordinary, but now that I have a new baby at home I have a new excuse. Anyway, speaking of baby Henrik, I took some time this morning to upload a few new pictures to his Henrik Flickr set.

I then took a few minutes to browse my Flickr View Statistics. I’m up over 53,000 views? Cool. That was fun to see, but what was really cool, blew me away really, was the discovery that Forbes had used some of my work (picture) on there site!

Depending on when you read this, you might still be able to catch the Forbes post here. If not, I just had to take a screenshot of the page, in case for some reason they decided to take it down.

Some of you are asking, how can Forbes use my work and I not even know about it? Allow me to explain. I have just about all of my work under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 Generic. All I ask for is a little something called Attribution. I have had it that way for some time but I recently watched a Chase Jarvis Live episode ‘The Future of Photo Sharing‘ that confirmed that decision. If you share photos anywhere on the internet, this is worth watching; especially if you might ever want to monetize.

One last thing. Here’s another one, posted on http://www.reputation.com. It’s the thumbs up, or Facebook Like picture that’s been viewed almost 12,000 times, but you do have to look closer to the end of the post to see it.

Thanks for indulging me and my ego. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
