As we have often highlighted on this blog, flickr is one of the most important social networking tools for our office, as it allows us to keep in contact with many people and to share our work. One of the most successful operations we have carried out on flickr is the Passerella 2006 Flickr Group where we collect photos of our footbridge in Turin taken by people.
With this post we would like to share a small selection of pictures coming from our Flickr network. This is a good example of how networking is about learning and discovering things, rather than just advertising your own work.
While looking through our flickr contacts I noticed that most of them share their photos with an “all rights reserved” copyright. With the exception of those who are doing this for professional reasons, I think many people are simply not aware that they can choose their license. As a result Flickr chooses this copyright as the default license. I would invite people to check this and, if they can,  to use a creative commons license (for example this one that Tomas Saraceno is using) in order to make it easier for their pictures to circulate on the web. There are lots of amazing photos in our contacts gallery which we cannot publish here because they are covered by a copyright.
