Flickr Ticker Eye Candy
As Cohen explains in this Flickr post, he also built in a few switches. By default, the Flickr Ticker just shows recently uploaded images. As you can imagine, that means a pretty mixed bag. A better choice would be to set Flickr Ticker to show photos that have bubbled up to the “explore” pool… images that have reached a high level of “interestingness” according to Flickr’s magic math. You can also set it to show images from a specific user. Like perennial island favorite, kaneblues!
Great stuff. I think it may very well replace the marumushi.com newsmap as my favorite background display.
Cohen an Adobe blogger and CEO of Glub Tech, Inc. said Flickr Ticker took one day to code. He’s inviting feedback and feature requests, and I’m sure Flickr Ticker by tag and group pools will be available in no time. [via Scobleizer]
