I read this
interest and some trepidation.
Reading this we face two issues;
- the good issue in that the potential for more immediate smart phone
uploads of events and the use of gps located photo needed will be be more
readily addressed through the adaption and development of app technology.
We should also see a rise in video contributions if we can get a consistent
and widely available formats.
- the bad issue will be a drop in the ability of contributors to provide
high resolution quality images. With the immediacy benefits we'll have a
fall in editing taking place with poor color, lighting, horizons.
Interesting times ahead its something we should as a community consider for
potential impacts and what moves may become necessary. When QI started it
helped to promote the need for quality images even of the mundane. While
this shift may not yet be a disaster its an issue we need to aware of,
watch how it develops, and be prepared to adjust to.
