Bloglines has created a new service that creates an 'image wall' out of harvested RSS feeds. Miguel Guhlin has created a bit of a stir in the edublogosphere by calling on educators to boycott it because "entering the Image Wall (and who reads those disclaimers anymore?), I was looking at pregnant women, a couple in a passionate embrace, and DELETE, so much for Bloglines." Well, given the overreaction of the legal system (see below) I guess I can understand the paranoia. But goodness, don't people realize that these images - yes, that means almost everything - are quickly becoming background noise.
