How social software gets mainstream...

... gets mainstream by 'funding' by, in this case, the German central government. More at heise online - German Wikipedia receives state funding :
"German edition of the open Internet encyclopedia Wikipedia will be receiving state funding. Germany will be setting aside part of its budget to improve information about renewable resources in Wikipedia. Over the next few years, several hundred articles will be written on this issue."

Image mosaic made easy

Originally uploaded by wytze
Just a quick note here. Recently I discovered Image Mosaic Generator. This is a really great tool (dunno if it should be labeled social software though, is it?) for creating beautiful mosaics. What do you think of this picture? I like it and it is really damn easy to create.
I just wish that you could ask to make a mosaic based on just your own photo's on Flickr, so that copyright infringements would not be an issue. Or am I being paranoid here?
