Hello Photocasting


Is podcasting taking a backseat to photocasting today? SJ plugged the idea at MacWorld during his keynote and consequently there are a handful of other interesting "podcasting for photos" items in heavy circulation.

Cellardoor posted slickr in mid-December, a flickr screen saver that displays images selected by favorites, tags and contacts on your monitor. The most current release, v. 1.0 Beta 7, was set free last week. Only runs on Windows XP. Link.

The eStarling WiFi gmail/flickr enabled LCD frame is shweeet but sold out. It's $249, Windows only, but you can run multiple "live" feeds at once or run photos off a CF or SD card into the frame. Link (via ThinkGeek).

Apple's photocasting app runs through .Mac and allows subscribers to sign up through an RSS feed of the account. More later, p'haps.

I also like this CNET piece about a bar in San Francisco's Mission district that set up an online photo booth in a corner. The bar's feed uploads photos directly into a flickrstream. According to reporter Elinor Mills, the bar also plans to project each night's photos onto its walls. (via BB)

[update 01/20/05] RSS experts claim that Apple's Photocasting app does not adhere to industry standards. Link.
