What if you are using a nice photo camera linked to a GPS or if you have GPS track with time associated with your travel. Then you could imagine that the GPS information will get tagged automatically on the image. This way you will automatically group them by location. This would give a more accurate separation than timestamp, would be more accurate to what people do anyway at the end and fit the semantic approach quite well.

The GPS unit is _of course_ disabled on my camera and my phone. I sometimes happy to share my photos, and the timestamp is (more than) enough information to leak.

Can't edit, I forgot to add that it's usually better for the device battery duration.

This is a different problem. I wish that web browser where more responsible and propose to remove this meta data when uploading file. Hopefully a semantic aware environment would care about that. It is clearly a shame to restrict ourself localy just because of crappy tool.

Well, I don't share my photos using websites either :)
And when I put them on a web reachable location, I don't do it with my browser (but they are access restricted anyway).

But when I share photos with others, I can't control what they will do with them, so I can't be sure they won't be uploaded somewhere.

But tools to automatically strip sensitive metadata such as GPS tags make sense in any case because that is something anyone will rarely _want_ to share.
