Ooops. Corrected link to flickr.

On the Flickr front, check out this creepy/awesome photoset: The Mozbots.

This can't end well.

It's a shame that tags alone aren't sufficient for this kind of things. For this, they use a moderated group to enforce the rules.

Mentioned in this post. The Flickr program was created by MeFite slactoid.

Didn't someone do this recently?? It wasn't flickr based, but it was the same idea. There was pics of people holding up stuff to make letters, and generally harder to read.

Mabye once refined people could use this approach for full out fonts.

I've a feeling this thread is about to get very long, very quickly. I miss Matt.

Just fixing the alignment with a closing style tag. Nothing to see here, folks.

It worked on preview. Can someone hope me? This is so ugly.

Seems like we've had a steady stream of these toys recently. I guess I must be missing something... ahh, to each his own.

Will this work? (just trying to hope...)

Well that's just great... you broke MetaFilter.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Is this really the first broken thread you've seen?

Dude, official head complainer is already taken. . .

Oh man, you guys are gonna get in such trouble when Matt gets out of the next session and checks in. Oooooooh!

Re: the FPP, this is pretty cool. I bet he could do the same and make a dynamically generated clock with pics from Flickr as well, kind of like the human time project or whatever it's called.

On Preview: Nevermind, the formatting's fixed. A spankin's been averted!

Weird, the page is good in preview but munged when it gets posted.

Reinstating the Ooooooh!

Whoa, I didn't even see that other thread.

I am totally blowing it!

READ MUCH, FENRIQ?

Because they showed up in Boing Boing.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
posted by NickDouglas at 8:51 AM on March 17, 2005


Yes. There's a Yahoo version and there's a Flickr version of the "spell it/web of words" toy. And there's also Amaztype, which builds letters out of pictures (of amazon products). And Robotype, which lets you make things out of letters.

Is the margin fixed now?

(worth a shot trying anyway)

WTF? Runningdogofcapitalism, I can't even figure out what you did to break this...
posted by caution live frogs at 11:21 AM on March 17, 2005


quonsar, heck no, that's why I like Flickr so much. I can feel smart without having to know all those big words. And I can leave my dictionary on the shelf.

Well this runningdogofcapitalism has his tail between his legs. I don't know how I did it, but I done broke this thread. It is a good thing indeed that I lurk more and post rarely. Sorry all.

The line to slap me upside the head forms to the right pls.

OH YEAH.

I mean, [this is very good and perfectly useless and even better because of that]

Damn you SXSW!! *shakes fist* This is your fault!

I can't even figure out how the thread's supposed to be broken. In Safari it looks just fine. *shrug*
