  1. This is my team's progress report from the MIT Mystery Hunt.
  2. "A common use of Flickr is to find photos. But what about finding a new species of insect? Insect biosystematist Dr. Shaun Winterton discovered a photo on Flickr of a green lacewing taken by Hock Ping Guek (known as Kurt on Flickr). The insect was not identifiable as a known species to Winterton, and after collaborating with the photographer, a specimen was collected in the Malaysian rainforest. Further examination showed that this indeed was a new species. The discoverers named it Semachrysa jade. The discovery was published in ZooKeys and the abstract reads: A charismatic new species of green lacewing discovered in Malaysia (Neuroptera, Chrysopidae): the confluence of citizen scientist, online image database and cybertaxonomy."

  10. Blog post on image 2147483647.
  11. Photograph number 2^31-1 was the first photograph in Flickr not to fit in a 32-bit integer and it, any photo after it, broke quite a few programs that interacted with Flickr.
