Flickr

I’ve known about this site for a while, but I recently looked in depth at the photo hosting site Flickr.com . The site features several different functions. An organizer, a labeling and comment system and much much more. If you are all about showing your digital photos online, I seriously recommend you give these guys the look over. They offer free accounts with 10 MB of upload storage a month. I’m thinking about investing in a paid account. They offer several features to blog your pictures as well including Livejournal, Blogger, and others. Check out my journal and you’ll see a display of 10 random photos. The also have cool widgets like this:

And for anyone who uses Blogger, you can use Picasa’s Hello Bloggerbot to upload an unlimited amount of photos to your blog. 2004 has been quite a year in the development of the coolness of the Internet. If you have any questions let me know. It would be nice to see other peoples photos.

Chirstmas Gift Dilemma

Like many, you are probably keeping your eye out for that perfect gift for your friends. Many store have the “ideal” gift section, where it’s full of prefabricated, “quirky” gifts such as minature fusball tables, and a tape measure with a level on it, or even the mug that belchs when you tip it. But let me remind you… those gifts are crap. The gift that is the most awesome is usually spontaneous, incredibly unique, or one that comes from the heart. So the next time you are shopping for a gift, make sure that it’s not a sweater vest with a lamb on the back… make it that cool digital axe that tells the temperture and cuts down a tree, or a fabulous hat that you found at a thrift store. Don’t let commercialism get you…
