NowPublic: The Something of Crowds

Lobster Traps Above the HarborI got email from NowPublic, asking me for permission to use this photo for the wonderfully-named story Cyborg Lobsters Foil Poachers.

I was initially flattered, then saw that there are over a hundred lobsterish photos associated with the story, then saw that most of them are very good and was flattered again. The NowPublic people didn’t need to ask permission: on Flickr, as here, I use the Creative Commons Attribution license.
