Richard Felix has written in to tell me about his SlickrFrame project and it’s pretty neat. He’s basically converted an old laptop into a WiFi digital picture frame which accepts public images streamed from Flickr via Slickr. If you want to send him a photo or a message just upload a photo of yours to Flickr and tag it slickrframe. He’ll feature interesting ones. Nice project.
I’ve always wanted to have a public window out to the Internet where anyone could write me a note, say hello, or share something cool with me… originally I was going to hook one of those scrolling LED displays up to the web, but I haven’t gotten the chance to do that yet, so I’m opening up my picture frame to the public, dubbing it SlickrFrame (with permission from Gabe, of course.) and setting forth one and only one rule: Upload any photo that you would like to your Flickr account and tag it “slickrframe”.
