👓 Moving photos from Flickr to WordPress | Chris Hardie

Read Moving photos from Flickr to WordPress by Chris Hardie (Chris Hardie)
If you're ready to move your own Flickr photo collection to WordPress and feel comfortable on the command line, you can go straight to the Flickr to WordPress tool I built and get started. Here's some backstory: I used to love Flickr as a place to store photos, and as a community for sharing and dis...

Though he could have gone a few additional miles here to create a full-on plugin, there’s a tremendous amount of awesome work here to help people download all of their Flickr content and put it into their own WordPress website to have and own it all on their own domain.

I hope that people will use his excellent instructions to test things out. Finding the small handful of potential bugs and troubleshooting them could help push this down the path to making it a more robust solution that could become a plugin.

And as a bonus for those who do use it, you might also consider taking a look at some of the IndieWeb related technology like Webmention and Brid.gy which can help you not only continue syndicating your photos into Flickr to interact there, but also get the comments on your content on Flickr to come back to your website as well. Then you can have the best of both worlds!

👓 Flickr exports, fixup tool plan | Nelson’s Log

Ahead of the Great Deletion, Flickr has a decent export tool built in to the user settings page. You click the export button, wait a day or two for an email, and then get some ZIP files to download…

We are very proud of the The Flickr Commons photos uploaded by galleries, libraries, archives, museums, and governmental institutions. These photos won’t be deleted as a result of any of our announ…

Great to see them explicitly address the questions they’ve been getting about archival value of photos as well as the commons and Creative Commons licensed photos on their service.

👓 How do we replace Flickr? #Indieweb #Yesvember | Kevin Marks

Read How do we replace Flickr? #Yesvember by Kevin MarksKevin Marks (Kevin Marks's Known site)
Flickr, like all successful social software, is different things to different people. When something is done well, we internalize the communities that we interact with on it as part of the character of the place. Just two average guys, minding their own business, walking down the street in SF. The u...

👓 Why we’re changing Flickr free accounts | Flickr

Read Why we’re changing Flickr free accounts (Flickr Blog)
Today, we’re announcing updates to our Free and Pro accounts that mark a new step forward for Flickr. To be candid, we’re driving toward the future of Flickr with one eye on the rearview mirror; we…

Nice to see that they’ve looked at the data to come up with what will hopefully be a reasonable dividing line.

Having a worthwhile community there would be the only thing to make me want to syndicate my photos to it, particularly with backfeed coming from Brid.gy. I haven’t gotten much, if any, interaction from Flickr in quite a long time.

I suspect that having a curated community there will actually dovetail with helping out the IndieWeb in the long run. What they’d like to have sounds a lot more like what micro.blog has become for me in the past year. It also sounds a lot more like how SoundCloud works to some extent.

👓 Rare hashtags | Matt Maldre

Read Rare hashtags by Matt Maldre (Matt Maldre)
It’s funny to find hashtags on Instagram that are rarely used. When commenting on a photo, I’ll often combine two words together into a hashtag. And then I click on the hashtag to see if there any other photos. Apparently is the first Instagram photo with the hashtag: #comiccompilations in the comments No photo has ever …

Matt makes an interesting point about the ability to use and search some social silos.

I present to you a URL oddity of no significant value. Impress and amaze your friends.

And it happened pretty much because of a typo.

Ok, here is a URL for one of my recent photos (I kind of like it) (shameless self promotion):

https://www.flickr.com/photos/cogdog/32331643261/

It’s a normal, current flickr page:

Now… add an extraneous extra slash at the end of the same URL:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/cogdog/32331643261//

Woah, it’s the previous flickr design layout!

Note: Logic might assume I could keep slashing back in time to the original white small square design, but alas no.

What use is this? Dunno.

But it is curious. And quirky.

That’s my kind of internet.

First owned like from Flickr

I recently started to own all my photos being posted to Flickr using POSSE. I just owned my first “like” coming back via Brid.gy! Thanks Brid.gy and IndieWeb!
