Doing things with Flickr....

Flickr Logo Beta-1 Here's a great collection of tools, projects and Flickr toys via the Flickr blog - the latest one really looks fun. Mediamatic held another in their series of Flickr event in Amsterdam on September 19th. Called Playing Flickr v2.0, the event was held in the city's Post CS building and involved attendees SMSing tags to a server which then displayed photos matching those tags on a series of giant screens. Flickr user slabbers grabbed the shot at right of one of his own photos appearing on screen. Link.

What happens when two legends get together? Awesome stuff, that leaves you goggle-eyed.

10 days back, the Google folks released their NatGeo layers; just start Google Earth and enable the NGM layers. Ashté!

1900 Galveston hurricane Track

This map shows the path of the un-named hurricane that struck Galveston, Texas in 1900. It made landfall as a category 4 hurricane and was the most destructive hurricane ever in North America. Currently, Rita has measured as the 3rd stringest recorded hurricane on record and is following a very similar path. This map was derived from the NOAA historical hurricane track IMS found at hurricane.csc.noaa.gov/hurricanes/ - created and posted by www.GISuser.com

Rita and Google Earth overlays

Rita2.Thumb DIY Weather channel - Ivo Janssen writes "I was browsing the Hurricane Rita path on the NOAA website, and then realized that Google Earth does image overlays. So I turned NOAA's boring picture into fascinating 3D views of the hurricane path. Currently, it's slated to miss Austin, make landfall at Matagorda Bay, take US-77 to Temple and Waco and then go on over Forth Worth". Link.

Fortune cookie




Your Fortune Is



If you run into your ex on the street, just shift into reverse and keep going.


What my birthdate means

Your Birthdate: August 29

Your birthday on the 29th adds a tone of idealism to your nature.
You are imaginative and creative, but rather uncomfortable in the business world.
You are very aware and sensitive, with outstanding intuitive skills and analytical abilities.

The 29 reduces to 11, one of the master numbers which often produces much nervous tension.
This is the birthday of the dreamer rather than the doer.
You do, however, work very well with people.

This is all the geotagged photos as of last night.

If you go over here...
www.geobloggers.com/growth/
...you'll see a bunch of images showing the growth for each new 1,000 images, that's once every 2 days.

Because it saves the files a jpg and then writes the next 1,000 over the top, the first few are getting pretty crudded up by the repeated jpg compression.

When we reach 100,000 I'll make a lossless .png. I'll probably also do USA, UK and Europe ones.

What do we learn? Well outside of USA and Europe people like to take photos at the coast.
