New photos on Flickr

I just published dozens on new photos on Flickr. Subjects include kittens, Maui, protests, and more.

Here’s two of my favorites.

Eddie Vedder. antiwar protest. LA.

I took this photo of Eddie Vedder with a cell phone camera at an ANSWER LA antiwar protest in 2003 or 2004. It is by far the most viewed photo I’ve blogged. Polizeros was getting just a few hundred visits a day then. I posted this photo and got 7,000 visits in two days. Also got photos of Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, and Pedro Almodovar (visible in this photo too) speaking at the rally.

Flickr on your television


Dave Winer is about to release a new product, and just posted the preannoucement.

There’s a convergence between big screen high-definition televisions, and photography as an Internet based activity.

The purpose of this product is to smooth that convergence, to make it easy to set up a connection between the Internet and your television. To allow photography to come into your living room in new, powerful and easy ways.

Think of it as the networked living room and you’ll understand the vision.

Winer, a visionary software developer, played a major role in the development of blogging, RSS, and podcasting. His new product could easily be quite innovative.

Update: It’s called FlickrFan and is available now for the Mac. ReadWriteWeb says it’s a little clunky but seriously promising.

Hopefully Winer will stick with the app and make it really nice to use – it’s not there yet but the potential is big and you can feel how close it is. Podcasting News says the big picture here is that HDTV is the new platform. That sounds good to me.
