Flickr announces Photo Session

I have been obsessed with Flickr for a number of years now and today my friend Seb pointed me to their new feature Photo Session.  This is about sharing photos in Flickr with friends in real-time from anywhere.  Photos can be commented on, flipped and drawn on in a group of up to 10 friends.  So this gets me thinking of how we could be using Photo Session not only online but also in our galleries.  If our Flickr photos are available onsite and visitors could connect with their friends then perhaps some interesting comments and stories could be made using the collections that we have made available in Flickr.  Perhaps this is a way to allow our less connected visitors to experience online photo sharing and story telling.   The session can last for 24 hours so it allows visitors to continue the experience once they leave the museum.  Photo Session is still in preview mode but I will be interested to see how this unfolds.
