Fire up Flickr

For reasons known only to him, Mike Dunn bought me a pro account on Flickr, only a few hours after the first time I uploaded any photos into the account. I figure the least I can do is to use it, so I downloaded the iPhoto plugin that exports to Flickr. I’ll be pushing up some of my Conway photos and such. Here is my account if you are interested.

  1. because i’d already bought the egc shirt/cd – because you didn’t have a pro flickr account – and because flickr makes it so easy to upgrade friends via a gift account and paypal (brilliant upsell engine)…

    but mostly, because i’ve been thinking a lot about something dawn actually said on her show where she talked about signing on w/ podshow/sirius (which was an incredible dnds podcast they did btw – very classy on their part to discuss the topic and their motivations they way they did)…

    she said that the world really doesn’t have a viable barter system for payment anymore – which for the most part i agree w/…

    however, i get value out of certain podcasts, and i want to be able to help out those podcasters whenever possible…

    so that’s why – it was a barter installment dave – no strings attached 🙂

  2. How odd – I can go to that page, but if I click on a picture for more, it mostly draws then it crashes my FireFox running on Fedora. Konqueror works fine, and FireFox on WinXP works fine. Sigh.

  3. Shannon, do you have talkback enabled on their such that you are reporting those crashes back to them? There used to be a bad Mozilla crash on Where’s George that would get me about once a day. Eventually, they got that fixed and it never happened again. With something as common and popular as Flickr you’d think that would get priortized pretty highly.

  4. Yep – and that was the first time I ever saw the dialog. We’ll see if it helps…

  5. I bought the EGC stuff package to encourage Dave, give him incentive, to continue podcasting, by helping out with bandwidth costs. And by buying the Gentle Readers CD, I encourage them, and indie bands like them, to keep promoting their music through podcasting.

    I originally held out from buying an EGC t-shirt/Gentle Readers CD package, for almost two months, because I thought I wouldn’t like the Gentle Readers CD. I originally was only going to put $25 in his tip jar.

    Dave’s goofy begging “if you loved me you would buy it” cracked me up and I started thinking about it. Then I saw Dave wearing the t-shirt, and I had to have one. 🙂

    As it turned out, I like the Gentle Readers’ CD more than I thought I would. Next CD, I’ll be more inclined to buy after listening to some of the songs, on Dave’s EGC of course.
