FlickrVision is supposed to take a snapshot of a randomly just uploaded photo on flickr (redflag: soon-to-be-Microsoft) and display it on the globe, every second a new one.


Currently it seems to take the location from the uploader’s profile (I saw alpine skiing in my country, yeah sure), but suppose it would take GPS coordinates, that are embedded as tags in jpg’s sooner than later? And almost real-time uploaded to services like flickr? Oh but wait, didn’t I write earlier about that? Oh, and now Yahoo (flickr) is going to be Microsoft’s soon eh?

Still, pretty cool I’ll admit.
