Tags and liberal interpretations

This poppeed into my RSS reader just now. It was tagged as ‘UI’ in Flickr.


The tagger in question must either be an exceptionally lateral thinker to consider this plate of green beans and a bit of chicken as a user interface, or he/she ate this in the context of something UI…

Another pic tagged ‘UI’ that crept into my RSS UI recently includes something closer to what we might agree really is a UI pic:

    Well, seeing that the meal poster seems to be from the Netherlands (or some other Benelux country) this UI might be the same as the German UI: a synonym for Wow – this is interpretation is backed up by the piscture, sort of; it’s an overloaded dish after all :]

    A problem that’ll araise around tags will be the language of the involved individuals it seems…

  2. I hate to say this, honey, but computers are just about 0,2 % of the human culture…
