So, I was just talking to a friend of mine, and he was complaining how he has to put his images on a photo hosting site like Flickr to be able to help withstand the Digg effect.
I said to him that we need a plugin that would allow us to create alternate locations for images and make it so that if a person comes from Digg or Reddit, it pulls the image from Flickr, otherwise just show the locally hosted image.
This could potentially save people a fair bit of bandwidth, especially if they have caching issues and the like.
Has this already been made? If not, if someone makes it, I will promote it here.
