Social Cameras

I’ve become hooked on Jaiku and taking part in the community online there. As a result I’ve not been reading all of my feeds. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but taking part in Jaiku is like a conversation than just reading feeds.

Anyway, the feeds or blogs that I have been reading have been Scoble’s (he’s on Jaiku too) and Dave Winers as his blog tends to be smaller posts.  One of his recent posts was social cameras which I think is such a cool idea, the thought of getting home and having all the (public tagged) photo’s that people have taken all around you is an extremely interesting thought. It wouldbe like having not just yoour friends photo’s to look at but a communities photo’s to look at…amazing.

another networking puzzle

Dave has a network problem as he’s just bought a second DSL line. I’ve also got two DSL lines but haven’t bothered to connect the two together. I did think about it, running two IP networks on the same LAN and assigning default routes manually. But the hassle wasn’t worth it. It just means the switch over if one line goes down is a few minutes longer. The complexitity versus the benefit doesn’t stack up. Besides one of my DSL lines should disappear soon, but it hasn’t.
