New photo sharing site: 23People.com

Stumbled across a new photo sharing site tonight called 23People. I’ve uploaded some photos from my recent trip to Japan to try it out.

While Flickr is pretty cool (especially tagging), I was always troubled by the user interface and layout. Seemed too pedestrian and function over form. Since they’ve been purchased by Yahoo — in my view “home of pedestrian design” — I’ve been interested in who might be coming on the scene to compete in the photo sharing space.

Whois shows a domain registration in Denmark yet all the photos on the home page are people of Asian heritage. Don’t know what that means.

It’ll be interesting to see how this site unfolds and to hear the story of its birth and who is behind it.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
