Astute Cruft readers will notice that I've changed my moblog from Textamerica to Flickr. There's nothing wrong with Textamerica, but Flickr is much cooler. Far beyond a simple moblog site, Flickr has tons of cool things.

I met Caterina and Stewart, the founders of Flickr, at Digital Foo Camp and was chastised for not using Flickr as my moblog. Previously, I hadn't given it much thought. Flickr seemed like a typical photo site when I first signed up.

When I took a closer look, I was impressed. The way you can see your friend's photos and leave notes right on the picture is really cool. The integration of Flickr into use as a moblog and as a blogging tool is done well. They have good uploading tools for your computer and a simple way to send photos from your mobile phone.

You can check out my photos easily. You can even subscribe to feeds of my photos if you want to, that's what the Atom feed to the right it.

My favorite feature is FlickrLive, the chat page where you can share pictures with others in an IRC style.

So signup with Flickr and add me as a contact. I wanna see your photos. You can find me as Argyle or search for Michael Pusateri.
