Description:    The report takes an in depth look at geometric growth of photoblogging, a new form of web-based
                photo sharing that has seen 10X month over month growth in content and users since the Spring of
                2003. Based on extensive research of blogging and photoblogging services, technologies and
                applications, the report examines how photoblogs are changing the way digital photos are used and
