Have you ever had a really cool idea and hoped like crazy that you were the first to think of it? I had that experience just last night as I got ready for bed, having just finished posting some photos to a Christmas photoset on Flickr.
One of our favorite things to eat for almost all holidays is “Palos Verdes Hot Shrimp,” a wonderfully spicy concoction that burns the lips but tastes oh so good. My idea was to post a photo of the dish on Flickr and include the recipe in the photo description. Sadly, at least one person beat me to this idea. I might have improved on the idea by including the major ingredients as individual tags. If that caught on it would be a pretty slick way of finding a recipe that includes a particular ingredient (or two or three). You can use the Flickr advanced search to search by multiple tags or even the titles and descriptions.
What does this have to do with educational technology? Not much other than promoting some of the cool stuff you can do with Flickr. But I hearby challenge all of you to post a photo of your favorite holiday dish along with the recipe. Then come back here and post a link to it in the comments. I can see it now, the ed tech blogger holiday cookbook.
