Interestingness. Sooooo, what exactly is interestingness
anyway?? Well, on Flickr, it?s based on
some algorithm or something that says whether your photo is interesting to
others or not, or interesting to the algorithm, or whatever. Some computer
thing I guess.
Something interesting about this?I have a popular picture,
over 400 hits, that is top of my hits list & top of my comments list (well,
until this week), and until yesterday, top of my interestingness list. Heh!
Well this particular shot was #1. Well, I posted it to this
group, 300 views, and it IMMEDIATELY dumped to #27 or 28 from #1 on my
interestingness list. Holy crap. OK, lets remove it from the group & see
what happens. Nothing. OK, lets put it back in. BAM, down to #180 on the list!!!
HOLY SHIT BATMAN!!! I tried this with another photo?same thing. Big dump. Next
day another photo?same thing, this one dropped 150 spots in my interesting list
just by putting it in this group. Now what?s up with that?
Go figure. Stupid computers anyway!
