A Little Flickr Fun Doesn't Hurt Anyone

I told myself I wouldn't get involved with photo tagging and image editing. I told myself that sites like myspace and friendster were for kids and music people, a distraction more than anything else. And yet... it all holds an odd charm. Sites like flickr and photobucket can keep me entertained for hours, especially when combined with Photoshop. And it's good to know I can keep up with the technology the kids are interested in. But it's come to the point where I need to draw the line- there is a finely chiseled balance between fun and obsession and I'm close to toppling over the edge. I only hope these kids appreciate the lengths I go to to keep informed.
