Recently I came over two posts on Flickr, where people asked for advice on what to do. First it was Jason Kottke that wanted an opinion on his new glasses. (original post on Flickr here).
Then Matt Mullenweg wanted some advice on which dress his girlfriend should wear in an upcoming wedding:
This is the new web: Communicating with others, and letting you decide. Just as Time Magazine have figured out too too:
In 2006, the World Wide Web became a tool for bringing together the small contributions of millions of people and making them matter.
The “help me decide” tag
What if we tag all posts like this “helpmedecide” – in one word and no spaces? Tag your posts for Technorati (tag: helpmedecide), your bookmarks for Del.icio.us (tag: helpmedecide) and your pictures for Flickr (tag: helpmedecide) (and similar services).
I’ve created a Flickr group for this. So if you want the world to help you decide, just take pictures of the different choices you have, and make a new thread in the Flickr group. Buying a house? A car? A dress? Can’t decide on the christmas presents? We’ll help you decide!
And feel free to post links to posts and pics in the comments. I’ll promise to vote!
