Google+ Collections ... and why I like them!

What is the driving force of our activities in the web? Do we follow certain people or are we interested in certain topics? Most likely it's a combination of both but I believe human beings are generally more interest driven.

When Collections were introduced to Google+ you could read stuff like: "Ah, now they're trying to copy pinterest because they failed to beat Facebook." Especially tech media goes for easy headlines and explanations which were made to serve first they're own purposes.

In the meantime many have realized that Collections are a powerful tool and a lot have been created. The old "follow you - follow me" game seems to be over. Circle sharing is already over (thank you Google!!) and this is a clear sign that Google+ is moving towards being an interest based system instead of a follower based one.

Facebook connects people and Google+ becomes the network where primarily common interests are shared and of course also people get connected but this happens as a "side effect".

I personally really like Collections and have created so far
9 (see above) in my profile and
5 (see below) in my page 

and I'm sure there will be more.

eBay and the Bulgarian Print Mafia

Thanks to my image search tool Plaghunter I found an image of mine being sold on eBay by a person named Steve Ramsbottom (51 Timber Court, Grays, Essex, RM17 6PW, United Kingdom) - don't know if this address is correct.

I contacted Mr. Ramsbottom and several emails were exchanged. He does not want to give me clear information where he has these prints from.

Fact is that photos of the following photographers are also being sold:
  • Dahmane
  • Christophe Mourthé
  • Simon Hind
  • Trevor Watson
  • Giorgio Balmelli
  • Dirk Krauzig
  • Jim Weathers
  • Pierre Gouzou
  • Ed Fox
  • Erik Hansen
  • Aaron Hawks
  • Stockhardt
  • Bob Carlos Clarke
  • Rod Ashford
  • Harald Jahn
  • Gilles Berquet
  • and many more
Since I'm pretty sure none of these photographers gave permission to sell these prints it is necessary that eBay removes Mr. Ramsbottom's account and asks for all the money back. I have filed a DMCA report through eBay's Vero system and informed them by email.

eBay has removed the reported item but nothing else has been done yet. I informed some more photographers and we will see how they'll react.

This is a criminal case which must forwarded to the UK authorities.
