  1. That Flickr find your friends thing is cool, but I do wonder about privacy issues – it is, ultimately, tying together, for a third party, and without their consent to boot, two pieces of peoples’ online identities which they may prefer to keep separate: if I’m in your gmail address book as and use the same account to sign up for flickr, where my username is lennyqracist but my login relies on the former address, I don’t necessarily want you to be able to find the pictures of historically accurate lynching recreations that I’ve put up for my good friends at the KKK.

    Unless I’m missing some colossally obvious caveat or technical point, which is, of course, entirely possible.

  2. Yeah, that is a problem - I think Flickr’s response is that the friend finder thing respects the privacy settings for people’s profiles (you can already elect to be excluded from searches), but it should probably be opt-in rather than opt-out.
