In a long overdue move, we're casting our wide net into the vortex of visual inanity known as Flickr by establishing an official Gawker photo pool. The unmoderated, public group is open to submissions concerning our usual favorite subjects — Manhattan and New York, celebrity sightings, news, gossip, and poontang. We expect the pool to get immediately stuffed with hooker ads and cute cats/babies in no time, but we'll periodically dredge the shallows to see if anything of interest floats up. Just like a cult, the rules are simple — join and submit.
