Flickr/vishnu

The last post was an experiment in posting to the blog through Flickr, just about the best online hosting resource for photos. Now, I have created a page over there, clicky clicky!

A word about the advantages of using an offline hosting resource: one, you save space. Two, you get unique features (click on vai and gau) that aren’t available in any hosted solution. And three, having it offline means that you can manipulate it in other ways too… it isn’t blog specific. For the disadvantages, there’s the fact that your files aren’t under your personal control, and also the ever present danger that the service might fold down.

However, Vysnu is going to move to such a model… integrating Flickr, Del.icio.us, Audioscrobbler, and perhaps even Amazon into this site.
