On May 29, 2013, in Photography, by Josh Hallett

Ahh, Flickr. It’s been too long. Your refresh suddenly has everybody interested again. I certainly am.

Now I just need to start carrying my camera everywhere again.

Fun with Homonyms – Branding

On August 10, 2005, in Branding, Tagging, by Josh Hallett

Ahh homonyms, they’ll sneak up on you sometimes. The other day I was checking the tag branding on Technorati. On the results page, pictures tagged branding are pulled in from Flickr. If you are used to the term branding in the marketing and communication sense, you will quickly be reminded that branding also means:

A type of body modification that is applied to the body with heat with the goal of producing an artistic and aesthetically pleasing scar.

Fred Wilson describes why Posting, Subscribing and Tagging are the three things that blogging is all about for him. It’s all part of the new read/write web (you know Richard MacManus has done a good job branding himself when you can’t write read/write without thinking of him)

I am in the process of updating my Guide to Media Monitoring I wrote back in January of this year. I am planning on including all the new blog search tools and custom RSS watchlists/feed services. There will also be some information about tags, specifically dealing with monitoring tags via Technorati/del.icio.us/Flickr, etc.
The guide is mostly geared towards communicators, but just about any user can learn something from it. Anything you think I should include? Perhaps some service that I might not have heard of? Leave a comment.

Flickr to say ‘Print this Page’?

On June 16, 2005, in Stuff, by Josh Hallett

InternetNews says that Flickr is set to launch a photo printing service. The article states that only photo books will be available for printing and not individual photos. I would hope that individual photo prints would soon be available but perhaps the economics of small print jobs like that aren’t that great.
Interesting stat from the article:

According to Jupiter Research, 47 percent of consumers don’t print their (digital) photos at all. Although printing is moving from the store to the home, Jupiter says that 10 percent of consumers with computers don’t even have a printer. Sixteen percent of the consumers Jupiter surveyed prefer to share photos via e-mail or the Internet.

I rarely ever print digital photos anymore. I used Ofoto all the time a few years ago, but all the picture-receiving-relatives now have computers.

The Gates at Flickr

On February 13, 2005, in Social Networks, by Josh Hallett

One of the many reasons I love Flickr.
The Gates opened this weekend in Central Park and there are already hundreds of photos available at Flickr under the tag ‘thegates’. The New York times has a good article in Sunday’s edition as well.
At least the City of New York is allowing people to take pictures, unlike Chicago and Cloud Gate. Of course there are lots of pictures of ‘The Bean’ on Flickr
