Flickr Geotagging

At last!! Flickr have launched a way to hook up flickr and Yahoo! Maps.

I started work on a system like this for podcasts, but had stopped work when I saw that they didn’t cover Europe. Now I see they cover the whole world, so it’s time to dig out that flash file and knock out a version for podcasts. Hurrah! πŸ˜‰

Here’s a map of photos in Antigua. And watching the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Cooool!

    I had a related idea for geo-tagging for second life:

    I would be cool if such tags would appear in RSS feeds generated by blogHud. πŸ˜‰

    I am working on some display tools for these.

    I do not have your email address but would love to chat with you about blogging, geotagging and Second Life. You can email be at address above or catch me in the game.

    I display the point location in the blogHUD RSS feeds.
    Though, it seems we need to RFC a standardised way to write these tags.

    I will look you up in world πŸ˜‰ or mail me at kosso1 at gmail dot com

    there are standards for real world geocoding, see them in here:

    see in there also the way to extend rss so it still validates too (i needed some new tags of my own), probably you know that though

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
