“...although people are doing this out of a personal need to keep track of their photos and so forth, the aggregate social effect is that if you go onto Flickr today and you look for all photos tagged ‘Mermaid Parade,’ you’re going to get tens of thousands of photos taken by hundreds of individual photographers.” - Clay Shirky 5

“Especially if the event is carried out through a network where your staff cannot be everywhere the event is taking place. It gives everyone a feeling of community and shows what people are doing for your event. It also helps capture stories that are really compelling so you can retell them.” - Ian Gottesman talking to Beth Kanter about Global Youth Service Day 12
