Don't Dicker with a Random Flicker

A new clever weekly meme from If I Ran the Zoo:

And I had an idea: random Flickr-blogging.

So now I'm recruiting bloggers to participate.

Here's how it works:
  1. Every week, we all start with the same randomly-generated four-digit number (call it ####).

  2. Go to Flickr and search for "IMG_####". There should be anywhere from a few hundred to a couple thousand results.

  3. Choose an image from among the results, post it to your blog (be sure to include attribution and a link back to the page where the image appears--this is done automatically if you use the 'blog this' feature in Flickr).

  4. The rest is up to you. Write about the place shown in the image. Make up a story about it. Connect it to some issue you care about. Or just post it as an image you really like. Do whatever you want.
I'm going to start doing this on Mondays (because Mondays really need more amusement). If anyone is interested in participating, post in comments or e-mail me at tvhilton [AT] gmail [DOT] com. The more bloggers we get on board, the more interesting it'll be.

INOTBB will start next week--didn't seem right to begin a new labor on Labor Day, even if it's the neutered American labor day meant to separate us from the rest of the working world's May Day.
