Webshots Shoebox

I got the scoop that Webshots has a new beta experiment up called Webshots Shoebox which is like a universal photo aggregator mashup. Get the bookmarklet and it’ll all make sense. I noticed it imports tags from Flickr too. They have a blog to engage the conversation, so go check it all out. (The blog is on WordPress, of course.) Accord to Alexa has the #58 most traffic in the world. (Slashdot is #1,421.) Hat tip: Narendra.

T-Shirt Plea

Open letter to free schwag people: Not all geeks are XXL! There is a reason the small and medium shirts are the first to go. Please keep the smaller geeks in mind when purchasing your merch. Conference organizers: make t-shirt size part of the registration so you can give your vendors a heads-up to the size makeup of the conference. (Other than that, Gnomedex is going great.)

In Seattle

New York was a blast, but now I’m all the way on the other side of the country in chilly Seattle. There are apparently quite a few conferences going on here this week so booking a hotel was a nightmare, the selection was very limited, but on the plus side I ended up on one of the top floors of the Sheraton and the view is great. Gnomedex looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and have a ton of good information. We’re going to do a WordPress BoF or party or open source bar or something, so put your name on the list on this page. I didn’t get to meet a whole lot of people in NY because my schedule was so tight, so hopefully I can catch up in Seattle.
