We should choose a flickr/delicious/whatever tag specificially for the workshop. IOWOSM? Flickr doesn't make it easy to grab photos from multiple tags, so there's the combo in one completely unused 6 letter sequence. Also useful will be "IsleOfWight", "IoW", "OSM", "OpenStreetMap". 

I'm interested in complete flickr mapping of all IoW photos, however infringing, but seperate from the OSM database. I'd think we only need to be careful when it comes to using those photos for street signs, etc. 

With geobloggers offline, we'll need to whip up some flickr aggregation ourselves (assuming flickr doesn't release an api or georss feeds before then -- which could be way way cool). I have some scripts to get at geotagged photos, with tripletags or exif. Maybe we can ask Dan Catt for a download of the geobloggers archive for IoW.

Oh, it looks like PhotoMap derives its locations from the current location
on a Google Map?  Unfortunately we've ruled out that approach at
OpenStreetMap because it leaves our dataset vulnerable to being accused of
copyright infringement.

On the Isle of Wight I'll certainly be encouraging people to geotag photos
on Flickr, but using GPS coordinates they've collected themselves. If your
extension can make use of that then great, otherwise sorry but it doesn't
tie in very well with OpenStreetMap at the moment :(
