- For those of you who don't know what Flickr is (really?), it is an online photo sharing/organization tool that you can use for your photographs. These days, it appears like it could be one of the top contenders moving forward. Tons of new dynamic features become available all of the time. Go visit Cool Hand Luke and see how he has incorporated a rotating family photo strip into his blog. Last night, I found this cool feature that queries Flickr for letters and spells (with photos), any word you type in. Fun.
- Starbucks Movie Blitz: It is old news at this point that Starbucks is promoting Akeelah and the BEE (listen to the NPR story here). Fortunately, this appears to have increased the chances that you get a jacket on your coffee...thus undermining the power of the Jacket Revolution (I did need to ask for one last night though). The jackets that advertise the movie have different words that were the words which won past spelling bees. Pretty Cool. Except for the fact that they don't tell you what the words mean! Why is that? I complained to my barista last night and they immediately solved the problem. You see, there are Akeelah and the Bee coasters that Starbucks can give you! So. My order is now officially: "Triple Grande Vanilla Jacketed With Whip Latte, Bee Coaster please."
