The Evolution of a Creative Commons Photo

So a few years ago, I took this picture:

I gave it a Creative Commons Attribution license so people could do whatever they want with it, and I use Google Alerts to look for cases where people link back to the Flickr page or mention my name. It seems quite a few random blogs use this picture (searching for "blank screen"), but today I noticed people actually adding to it!

First came a Fast Company article (about movie theaters watching you back) that added an eye:

Creepy. (Oddly, they credit me, but not whoever shot that eye.)

Then a Slash Gear article upped the ante by adding crazy lightning bolts!

Yay Internet. :)
