Semantically-linked photos: Coming soon to an Internet near you.

In the video presentation below, a new technology is discussed that practically blew me away. Imagine being able to upload photos to Flickr or some other photo sharing site, and then have them automatically linked to all the other photos and textual information from the Internet related to them, especially if they have geographic or other spatial attributes connected to them. And the resulting meta-display is almost instantly scalable and zoom-able.

Imagine having students do a research or exploratory project with this kind of rich information!
