I don’t know what formula Flickr uses to calculate “interestingness” (from what I read it changes often), but the Flickr API allows developers to display such photos in creative ways. The Flickr photographer flagrantdisregard comes to mind first, with all the Flickr Toys he’s created from badges to postcards to stamps to slideshows from the Explore page.

Came across another display method today, this time another developer using the “interestingness” ranking output for photos.

My “interesting” photos on black or white.
