GoodBarry

Ran across a news article on TechCrunch about GoodBarry. Obviously I just couldn't resist finding out more about good ole Barry. I like this part. "As CEO, software developer and customer support rep you can imagine that "Barry" had the powers to grant a lot of our customers' wishes. As the resident online business genie, Barry quickly become loved and known for his quick responses and willingness to help." From the GoodBarry/About page.

I'm not making this up. Apparently, when I'm good, I'm very, very good!

I spent some time this weekend updating the design of this blog as well as Desire2Blog. I used a photo of a Red Sea starfish from Flickr member JennyHuang to create the new header. The header is a bit large (tall), but I didn't want to lose too much of the photo. Jenny is one of the many photographers sharing their work through the Creative Commons licensing (Attribution) option built into Flickr. Almost all of my photos are similarly licensed.

I resized, cropped, and added the text elements using my favorite free online photo editor, Picnik. I just heard that Flickr and Picnik have signed an agreement that will likely lead to the Picnik tools being integrated into Flickr in some way. That should help make Flickr a one stop shop for digital photo needs. Already it is very easy to access your Flickr photos in Picnik, so I mainly hope that they don't muck it up.
