Flickr Mobile: One To Rule Them All

Mathew Ingram published an excellent overview of the photo sharing war being waged between Twitter and Instagram/Facebook.

One thing overlooked that is extremely important, however, is monetization. Everyone I know on IG (where I too have a moderately large network with little overlap on other services) is very nervous about Facebook’s future monetization strategy for Instagram. (Will there be ads? Will they drive me crazy?)

Check out the #igaintfb tag on Instagram for a taste of how happy Instagram users are with the Facebook deal.

The beauty of Flickr is there’s no mystery around monetization. A pro account is very affordable, and the service is rock solid. It’s my hope that Flickr schools both Twitter and Instagram on how an open API ecosystem really works.

Presentations

I was asked to provide a copy of my “Lessons from the Failure of SOAP” slides, which once resided on Apple’s iWork.com Beta.

I’ve started a page to archive my slides, and links out to them where appropriate. I haven’t done many talks lately, but I’ll add some old slides here as I find them on my hard drive.

To those of you who’ve asked, thank you!
