as an experiment, i'm putting this one out without editing for content. i think it went smoothly enough in the recording that there's nothing that really screams to be cut out, but i'm not going to listen before releasing it. it may sound a little sloppy; somehow, life will go on.

flickrcast group

sometime in the past two days, bryan, i, and MemoryMotel all had the idea that there ought to be a flickrcast group. MemoryMotel set it up, but has since turned over the admining duties to us. the group's just awaiting some new members now, so if you've got anything you want to discuss or anything you want to add to the pool (please read the group description for the type of pics to add), join us at the flickrcast group.

flickrcast - Episode 2

we slaved over a hot mixing board to bring you... Episode 2!

if we've been extremely lucky, the audio quality should be much better for this episode. we recorded our separate sides of the google talk conversation then mixed them together. hopefully jason got the syncing right... (i did, but i forgot to do some of the stereo separation and didn't notice until i'd already spent a half hour on editing and didn't feel like redoing all that. so bryan's voice is in the center this time rather than slightly over to the right. i'm still learning, kids! i also left in some parts that should have been edited but stayed because they amused me. they're not quite worksafe so listen from the safety of your headphones.)
links for this episode:

* theme music this time around was the rather obvious choice - birdw0rks' The Flickr Song.
* as reported previously, the big news of the week was flickr's introduction of printing services.
* here's where you can get books, dvds, and stamps printed.
* please support awfulsara's Awful Print Drive.
* here you can preview some of the photos she has for sale.
* listener feedback was from user zabethanne.
* the much-maligned deleteme group.
* ...and the corresponding group for everything that was voted "saveme."
* a more lighthearted group - bryan's pick this week is Don't Take My Picture!

flickrcast - Episode 1

hey, it's [finally] the first episode!

we recorded via google talk so periodically you'll hear the bandwidth issues hit us as bryan's voice crackles and fades a bit. so it goes. we also ran a little longer than planned; we're wanting to be in the 20-30 minute range. sorry.
links for this episode:

* the theme music, "I Crush Everything" by Jonathan Coulton, can be found at
* want to see what Interestingness is all about?
* have fun exploring with Mappr.
* Bryan's stream of "this" week is ciro@tokyo's set "25."
* Jason's stream of this week is junku's "airborne cats" set.
* we're both impressed by Petteri Sulonen's work with the new Canon EOS 5D.
* we play birdw0rks' The Flickr Song because it is kickass, even if including a second music bit seems a little gratuitous.
