I frequently wake up at three in the morning and then fall back to sleep around five or six. Normally I use the time to do easy things like potter round my computer and sort out my bookmarks and stuff.
Today I downloaded Flock, the social web-browser for Macs.
It a sort of mix between a browser and a social networking tool. It's really very neat. And it's all integrated with flickr ... I can view my own and other people's photos from my browser. This blog post comes to you from Flock and I can easily drag and drop one of my photos from flickr into the post. Other things I liked included:
- I can categorize, tag and share my favorites.
- It starts giving me search results as I'm typing.
- It automatically saves my blog posts into a folder in my documents.
On the downside and at this time in the morning, I couldn't stand to see the flashing pictures in the Flock demos. And I miss not seeing the del.cio.us icon and "tag this" that I had on my Firefox toolbar. Nevertheless, move over Firefox, I'm on a new browser onda.
Another fun thing I did these early hours was making myself some Flickr MiniCards from my flickr photos.
For $20 you can make cards with your flickr photos and personal details on the back. How cool is that! I chose my ten free flickr cards which you get if you are a Pro user.
Oh oh! It's now almost 6.30 am. Fun's over. Time to catch some sleep.
