I am giving a workshop on Flickr next month and I have to admit that there isn’t a conference that goes by where I don’t learn something new about Flickr (that I should have known). I’m at the NFAIS Humanities Rountable and Tim Spalding has just finished his intro to LibraryThing talk in which he showed tag clustering on Flickr – a feature introduced over 2 years ago!!! Tim used [ Read More ]

To quote Richard Wallis from Talis – “Take yourself to this video of a presentation at the 2007 TED Conference. Don’t argue just take a look!” WOW! At first it’s just neat … and then it’s gets neater … and then … WOW!!! Favorite quote (with some editing out of ums): What the point here really is is that we can do things with the social environment. This is now [ Read More ]
My pictures now show up in searches. You can see my Code4Lib pics along with others by searching for the code4lib2007 tag. Technorati Tags: flickr, code4lib2007, code4lib
So, it looks like Flickr has decided not to show my pictures in public searches – I’m working on resolving this. For now you can see my Code4Lib pictures right here in this set. Enjoy! Technorati Tags: code4lib, code4lib2007

I did a little browsing to find pictures taken by a particular camera. I can use this to figure out which cameras take the best pictures (for me). I have added the FujiFilm E900 to my wishlist per a recommendation from a friend (and [ Read More ]
Flickr now has a Camera Finder that shows you which cameras are the most popular on Flickr. It doesn’t actually show which cameras are good – just which ones the most members on Flickr use. Not terribly useful – but still interesting.
I have just paid for my Flickr account – that’s right – up til now I just stayed within my limits as a free member, but today when I couldn’t create a new set for IL2006 photos I decided it was worth it to make the leap! So now you can see my pictures at my own address: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nengard/ and I can upload until my heart’s content. See my IL2006 [ Read More ]
The FlickrBlog has announced that you can now geotag your photos, browse photos by location – and view them on a map! This looks like fun, I’m going to have to go play with it.
Amiglia is an awesome looking photo sharing site. It lets you share photos with your family in a sort of family tree layout. Confused? I was too – but then I played with the little demo on the home page and I think I get it. Basically you can link your album to your family’s albums and it makes a sort of family tree out of your ablums. I’ll have [ Read More ]
