In a fit of nerd-tastic enthusiasm, I’d happy to say that yesterday I got linked up by BoingBoing. For those that aren’t familiar with the site (it’s one of my daily reads, and a site I check up on multiple times a day), it’s got a pretty massive audience.
Needless to say, I’ve been getting a great deal of traffic. :)
I’m a big fan of BoingBoing, and getting recognition from them is immensely flattering. I was walking around on a cloud yesterday afternoon.
This may sound a little weird, but I’ve been re-watching the project/video, and to see the constant change of photos has been really fantastic. Back in the early stages of testing, I was working with a set list of tags that didn’t change all that often… and now, as time goes on, as more photos are added… I’m seeing newer and newer photos.
I’m wowed by the project, now that I’m mostly done and just observing. Not in a “Gee, wasn’t what I built great?” kind of way, but in a “look at all these people, all these captured moments” kind of a way.
It all seems so new still, and yet I’ve noticed a great deal of change. I can’t wait to see what the experiment looks like a week from now, a month from now.
I’m digging all the comments I’m seeing and getting, and loving the fact that people like the photographs as much as they like the song.
You know that good feeling when you introduce two friends of yours to one another… and they end up hitting it off, and get along really well? Lately, that’s how the Astronaut project has made me feel.
Partly, it’s introducing other folks to Dan’s music. But it also feels like introducing this large throng of web surfers to this equally large throng of Flickr photographers. I think both groups are hitting it off.
It feels kinda good.
