And then that will hopefully kill the laborious process of geotagging. I think it's a grand idea, but am I willing to spend hours upon hours vaugely and imprecisely associating my photos with some locale? No. I want to do it right or not do it at all.
This is what I see happening: Eventually, services like Flickr will allow you to do things like organize your photos into topical sets (eg: "Canada Day at the Park") by simply drawing a circle on a map! And then, for things like private parties and family photos where you don't want the geolocation to be too precise, you'll be able to select a "vague" option which will just associate the photo with the city / town in general, or perhaps just the country, or perhaps nothing at all.
I just think the geotagging workflow right now is all messed up. It should be a matter of taking away information, not the grunt work of tediously plugging it in. I have more than 10,000 images on Flickr. If it took one minute to geotag every photo, I guess I could tag them all in a week, not accounting for food or sleep. But that doesn't sound like very much fun, does it?
Get me my GPS!
Good news: The Ubuntu version of the Mini 9 went down by $50. Hmm!
