Here's an announcement for anybody interested in having a little social gathering this Saturday (01-12-2008). I've been messing with photophlow for a little while now, and I think that it's the perfect place to get together and interact.
More specifically, I was thinking about using photophlow to go through our Flickr group images in the pool as I make my selections for the weekly PhotoDump. The interface is perfect for wading through lots of photos, so I figure I'll give it a try. I'm inviting anybody out there with access to photophlow to join me as I go through the photos, add my favorites, make my selections, and leave my comments. As I go through the photos, I encourage others to make comments or chat about them too. So here's what I'm thinking:
7PM PST (GMT-8), SATURDAY JANUARY 12
I'll probably show up to our group room about 15-30 minutes early to chat about whatever with whoever else shows up early. But at 7:00, I'm going to start running through the images. We usually have quite a few images each week, so it takes some time to go through them all. You can stay as long as you'd like, or you can leave early — it's up to you.
For those who don't know what photophlow is, you can read up on it at the following links.

This get-together is extremely experimental on my part and I'm slightly hesitant about it. I don't want to hear any belly-aching if I don't pick your photo or add a star to it! You guys need to understand that I've got upwards of probably 150-200 images to sort through and reduce down to 30 or 40. So try not to give me too much of a hard time about my selection process, otherwise I'll go back to doing it solo!
Other than that little tidbit, I hope to see many of you in the room with me and I look forward to some fun and insightful discussions! If things go well, maybe we can do this every week or every other week. We might even shift the times around so the same people aren't left out each week due to time differences.
