File this under the co-creative power of passionate users:

When we were doing our projections for how many photos Flickr members would geotag, we though that we’d hit a million in the first month, maybe even as fast as two weeks. Instead, 24 hours in, there were 1,234,384 geotagged photos (and now more than 1.6 million geotagged photos as I write this, about 9 hours later).

The question to all you web 2.0 companies, or VC’s investing in these companies, are you still measuring eyeballs? If you are you are going to get crushed by the companies that are measuring engagement and co-creation.
