Flickr Tag Spam or are TAGS the new email?

My old friend Tom Watson (from @NY back in the day) played a funny joke on people by placing their names as tags on a photo related to a non-profit/fundraising thing he is doing.

I found it instantly and took 3 minutes out of my life to figure out how I was related (before finding Tom’s explination “(If you’re coming here from Flickr and wondering “what the…?” yes, I tagged you – it’s an experiment by a proud board member).”

What do you think? Tag Spam or clever marketing?
