Can somebody please enlighten me to this FlickrFan thing that Winer and Scoble are all over?
Tell me it’s more than just some proprietary screensaver that downloads some photos from Flickr?
Best quote so far…
“Anyway, what does Dave Winerâ€™s new software do? It puts pictures up on my HDTV. â€œHuh, thatâ€™s the lamest thing Iâ€™ve ever heard,â€? I can hear you saying. But didnâ€™t you also say that about Twitter? About IM? About the PC itself back in 1977? Yeah, yeah, you did, own up to it.” – Scoble
Um, no I didn’t. IM has a really obvious use, as does the PC. In fact, I doubt anyone said this.
Twitter – I’m not so sure what the point of Twitter is, but people seem to be using it a lot. Good on them.
So, I have two questions:-
- Why is this so amazing?
- No, seriously. Why?
Flickr needs to provide me with a way to offer up an alternative image for people using this.
