If you found a camera memory card, would you be tempted to pick it up, pop it in your computer and see what comes up? That’s the idea behind PhotoChaining.com, a website that encourages people to buy cheap memory cards, snap a few shots of themselves, then leave them (obviously protected in a small casing) in public places in the hope that someone will pick it up. The memory cards come with a URL leading them to PhotoChaining.com where they are asked to upload the images, then once the card is clear, to add some photos of their own, then leave it in a public place of choice.
A fabulous idea, so long as people don’t get greedy and keep the cards, that they don’t get ruined by the weather, or that they don’t get stepped on or run over.
