Living on the edge

James Hall. Bowl. Mark

Australian Potters’ Marks depends on three free web-based services for storage and access to data: WordPress for the list itself, Flickr for images and topics, and Delicious for links to more information. For an independent researcher, there are many advantages to this kind of infrastructure. A third-party takes care of the functionality, data integrity and look and feel of the user interface. The downside is that this can result in the occasional unwelcome surprise. Just this week Delicious made a change to the format of tag URLs that broke every ‘More Information’ link I’d added to the linked topics in Flickr, as well as to the biographies in our online shop. The problem is fixed now and the links should all work again. Let me know if you find one that is still broken.

Illustrated: James Hall – JH in circle [1977]. (It was while bookmarking examples of James Hall’s work in the Shoalhaven City Art Collection that I first noticed the change.)
