box doodling

Thanks to Vic for this site. It is so inspiring.
I have been thinking about collections of stuff on the internet.
Flick has masses of collections under the label 'tags'. It is hard to deal with so much stuff. Tag ephemera and you get all that.
See what I mean?
Discarded is one of my favourite categories, but you have to sift through.
Collections is a great tag though.
Is it the same as when you look through endless objects in a museum and then feel exhausted and have to go and eat crisps on the back of the bus to recover?
Or being on-line is the process different there being no bus and no crisps?
Maybe Michaela would know.

Here is another interesting collection for you Kate, at the Museum of Dirt, which sadly now only seems to exist in archive form at Dirt from all parts of the world, contributed by 'real' people and lovingly catalogued. Inspirational!
