Permanence

Matt Gemmell:

I’m not going to claim that my own creative output has any more value than anyone else’s, nor that it’s ‘worthwhile’ in any particular sense. But it’s mine, and it’s thus unique. I think that it’s worth preserving, if only because this particular consciousness – this person – will never exist again. Your work has every bit as much value, and deserves similar preservation.

Fat Cat Software Aquires FlickrExport

Brian Webster:

I’m pleased to announced that Fat Cat Software has acquired FlickrExport from Connected Flow Ltd, its long time home. FlickrExport is a pair of plugins that let you upload your photos and metadata to your Flickr account directly from your iPhoto or Aperture library, using each program’s built-in exporting function. FlickrExport has also been updated to version 4.1, which now provides compatibility with iPhoto 9.5, and fulfills Flickr’s new requirement that all communication with its servers be done over an encrypted SSL connection.

Great news, since both development and support of FlickrExport had seemingly stopped years ago, and the plug-ins were on the verge of breaking.
