In praise of photoshare…

I was at a Web 2.0 for Good seminar last night run by London based consultancy, Policy Unplugged. There were some great conversations about collaboration and knowledge sharing online and some fascinating people. Web 2.0 is code for clever applications that allow people to put together resources that are much greater than the sum of the parts. Our Flickr group is a perfect example of that, with people posting all manner of stuff from reportage to humour to semi abstracts to landscapes to mundane politics. It has accumulated 139 members posting 1,856 photos of Northern Ireland in just over a year.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
