What a great use for Ask MetaFilter: a guy found a digital camera in New York City, and in an effort to find its rightful owner, he posted a few of the pictures to Flickr and then penned a post asking for help identifying the people in the images. A Flickr user has already identified the restaurant; let’s see how long this takes!

Update: looks like it isn’t going to work out, mostly because a few idiot members of the website Digg started complaining that the person who found the camera was infringing copyrights and otherwise violating the people’s privacy by putting the photos online. It’s amazing how idiotic people can be.
