Having reached the nice round number of 70 episodes, it seems to be pretty good timing that longtime viewer zombiebrainz had a great idea and some initiative and started the Screencasters Flickr Group (at http://flickr.com/groups/screencasters).
The idea is to have an easily accessible place for viewers and fans of Inkscape and our screencast to share some of what they have produced using Inkscape with or without the help or inspiration of our screencasts. It should be a good place to check out what others are doing, get some comments on your own work and maybe even find some inspiration (something I know I’m always looking for).
Anyone can view the Flickr group, but to contribute (upload stuff, leave comments etc.) you have to join Flickr. If you’re not already a Flickr member, you can sign up for free right here.
Shortly we will add a link to the Flickr group over on the right hand side of the sit. To check it out right now click here.
For those of you unfamiliar with Flickr, keep in mind that you will actually upload your images to your own account. You have full rights to those images to whatever extent you choose when you upload it. The group only aggregates that content for people with a common interest and provides a way for us all to communicate and see what others are doing. The group doesn’t control your content. You can remove it whenever you want.
Almost finally, if you do upload some content, feel free to geo-tag it if you want so that we can get a feel for exactly how global our audience is getting. Of course, like just about everything we do, it’s completely up to you. Whatever floats your boat. 🙂
Although zombiebrainz told me that he needed no pimping or link-love for coming up with the group and the idea, we’d be remiss not to acknowledge him. Visit zombiebrainz’s blog at http://zombiebrainz.blogspot.com/, and for those of you into the Twitter-thang, you can find him at: http://twitter.com/zombiebrainz. Mucho thanks to him.
Thanks to all of you for watching, subscribing and commenting. We’re having fun doing it.
