I’m not cool enough to be a camera phone toting moblogger, but it turns out that Flickr is remarkably useful even for people like me, who have too many scattered web directories full of unlabelled scanned pictures. It has one of the best UIs I’ve run across for a web service, for one thing. It’s fun to play with, so that’s motivation enough to dig out old pictures to upload. Sorting and labelling your pictures is really easy. And it’s set up to encourage people to look at what you’ve added. It doesn’t feel nearly as tedious as other methods I’ve used to sort and share pictures online.
