Flickr truism #347: babies outpull geniuses

Looking at the number of views on my Flickr photos this morning you can clearly see that photos of my baby son greatly outpulls photos of geniuses like Douglas Engelbart, inventor of the mouse, or Vice Presidents of Yahoo or Double Click.

What does it all mean? Just reminds me of my journalism schooling at San Jose State University. They always told us to put as many kids and animal photos in the paper as we could. Why? They sell newspapers. One teacher, I remember, told me “at least that kid’s family is gonna buy a copy that day.” Heh.

If you watch my link blog you’ll see me drop in a few photos here and there from Thomas Hawk and other photographers. Why? Cause I love great photography and it helps break up the more serious stuff.

Speaking of which, looks like there’s going to be a Photowalking on Sunday at the Rosie the Riveter National Park in Richmond, CA. I’ll try to be there with Patrick for a few hours.
