The Flickr Blog is mostly pretty pictures. Every now and then there’s also a beautiful story.
Last week Stewart Butterfield posted a gem about the guy in this picture. (I noted an earlier sparkler here.)
Here’s the caption from themexican, who took the picture:
Rashit in his yurt. He spoke several languages and was always trying to learn more. When he found I spoke Spanish he spent hours learning new phrases from me and steering clear of smalltalk. "No talk, we learn. Word for horse."
With so much yipping about 2-point-that and 3-point-this, it’s nice to be reminded of the values underlying all this technology — information, people and the world.
