They are struggling to find their place now. Traditional media is married to a physical support (paper) which is expensive to produce and distribute, it is not […]

PhotoTrackr Plus brings geotagging to Nikon DSLRs, leaves your hotshoe open

near.me a very cool foursquare interface

I have talked about foursquare in the past. When I first joined them they were only in a few cities and you were not able to edit places or are new ones. Now foursquare is a completely different different tool, much more powerful and more looking like the one it had my number one in […]
