Flickr’s a Wonderful Thing!

Huddled over our WACOM tablets, in the soft and continuous glow of our LCD monitors, we sit and push pixels and occasionally look up and see what all the hub-bub is about. Last week was one such moment when we posted our first set of photos on Flickr.

Our Chief Typist, quite by accident, discovered that the icons in his dock spelled out ”$eXy” and wondered what other words he could make from all the various app icons on his HD. Word quickly spread to the rest of the workers and Icon Words was born. Of course, we had to share these funny arrangements with our visitors, so we created a Flickr account and posted the pictures along with some recent shots of our Nintendo Wii adventures. You can send your own funny picts of words in your OS X dock thanks to this group we created just for the occasion. Thanks for the tips Wolfgang!

We’re still Flickr noobs, but its already apparent why the site is so popular. The social networking aspect of it is addictive to say the least and browsing the thousands upon thousands of users and their images is a magnificent time waster. So if you, like us, have heard about Flickr but not bothered to check it out, pop your head up and take a look. You never know what you might find.

Digg It!
