An Instant Message Interview With Flickr’s Heather Champ
“Heather: Professionals have certain ways they look at things, what they think the story is.
Heather: What I’ve seen on Flickr goes way beyond that into those “small moments.”
Kevin: And I bet it’s just sort of an everyday thing now, isn’t it?
Heather: I think that the media outlets get the power of the people on the ground capturing those moments.
Heather: It’s stunning how the timelines have collapsed.
Heather: It used to be days then hours and now mere minutes for images to be shared.
Kevin: That’s real power too, isn’t it?
Heather: Very much so. With no editing (though there are pros and cons to that) it’s very real and raw.”
