Flickr

"Wouldn't it be cool to spend a year with Greg Oden?"
A 365 days project on Flickr showing a figuring of the Portland Trailblazers star in various settings I love examples like this of people using a prop to experience and document their environment.
Not ShoZu's fault, evidently. I'm going to assume that ShoZu will release a fix just as I get my phone delivered.
Like user's favorites and their comments on other people's photosl. All you need to know is how to hack URLs and find out a Flickr user's NSID.

Interact with people, comment on other people's photos, and upload selectively.

Shared Items

A quick note to publicize my Google Reader Shared Items feed URL: http://feeds.justagwailo.com/justagwailo/shared. It uses FeedBurner and its MyBrand service which lets you use your a subdomain of your own domain for feeds. (It's a little weird that you have to email to sign up, since it should be an automatic process where you click a button then set your DNS to point to feeds.feedburner.com, but at least, as which Rogers Cadenhead correctly argues, it prevents lock-in to the FeedBurner service.) Right now it's only my shared items directly from Google Reader. I'd like in the future for it to include my 'dugg' items at Digg, my Flickr and YouTube 'favorite' photos and videos, respectively, and if there was a feed for it, my MetaFilter and Ask MetaFilter 'favorite' posts and comments. Just Google Reader items for now, though, as it's the easiest to setup while letting me add to it later.

Please let me know if you have feedback on the shared items. Too much of one thing and not enough of another? I subscribe to about a hundred feeds, which isn't close to those whose shared items I subscribe to. If I have comments about an article, I'll either socially bookmark it or blog about it, but at least this is a low-threshold way to say "this is interesting for some reason" without giving that reason.

Alex Jones' advice for Ma.gnolia group managers
The tips apply to managers and administrators of other communities build on top of other people's social software (e.g. Flickr).
pb is going off the Flickr grid
I kind of want to have my photos on a justagwailo.com subdomain too. (I'd even use Flickr if they let me point to their servers, for the community features pb describes.)
