hburgnews flickr pool

Josh -- March 8th, 2007

We’re happy to introduce the hburgnews flickr photo pool. For those of you unfamiliar with “flickr,” it’s a community website affiliated with Yahoo that hosts photos and has some fun ways for members to interact with each other, including “tags” and groups.

We’ve created a flickr group called hburgnews. Feel free to join the group and post photos of anything that has to do with Harrisonburg: sunsets, architecture, concerts, protests, restaurants, landscapes, you name it. So far, we have 12 members and 84 photos.

We may feature some more photos from the pool on hburgnews in the future.

    Nice! There’s a flickr plugin for wordpress, which let’s you see random pictures in the sidebar: http://www.randombyte.net/blog/projects/falbum/

    I’m planning to set up one of these soon for central valley artwork/photography/events when we design the Arts Council website. This wwill be combined with a new arts and culture calendar and an arts blog – I’ll be looking soon for 10-15 poeple who want to blog about local arts. Let me know if you’re interested.

    (If you don’t know what my new job is, look for my BIG FACE on Rocktown’s cover this week. I’m not sure why editors love to make my face HUGE in their stories – sorry for the shock everyone!)

    I plan to add that plugin sometime. Hopefully soon.

    Thanks for setting this up, Josh. I hope people catch on and start adding to the pool.

    Also, if anyone has a better photo of H’burg that is 760px by 175px, and would like to see it in the banner of hburgnews, email me.
