I love these kinds of gimicks… not! Check out this image I just received in some promotional effort by Prof Surv Mag. I get an email asking me to please take a survey and I can get a free Sweatshirt. Then i notice the little asterix next to the shirt and look below for more details. Then I see in something like 3 point text font the disclaimer – FIRST 50 RESPONDENTS – pretty much non-legible to the naked eye (I blew it up in an image enhancement app that I have in order to verify – see white area in image lower-left) Nice touch but personally, I’ll take The American Surveyor Mag ;0)
Recall I mentioned yesterday about the addition of geotagging to the flickr functionality.. well, apparently there’s been more than 1.4 million photos geotagged in the past 2 days alone… wow! Obviously this is a very desirable feature. HEre’s a reminder about the how to video – http://www.flickr.com/help/screencasts/vol1. Are you a flickr fan and in the Seattle area? How about attending the Seattle flickr meetup?
How cool is this… cover of the September issue (Volume 1) of GISuser Magazine – make sure you get a copy of this one packed full of goodies! More details on this can be found on my flickr. Actually, don’t look for this on the book shelves any time soon. Rather,this image was created using a very cool flickr add-on app from fd’s flickr toys that enables a user to quickly and easily create a magazine cover using any photo from your flickr photo stream (or upload one). A very cool tool
