I ♥ Instagram

Instagram is the latest little app to gain popularity with iPhone-nerds everywhere. The app takes all the good parts of online photo sharing and condenses them into a really slick package. They’ve included a good selection of dorky filters that will make almost any subject a lot more interesting than it actually is. Combine this with a really easy to use UI for liking/commenting you end up witha  really great experience. I feel like this is what the Flickr app should have been.

Speaking of Flickr, Instagram doesn’t hoard all your pictures like some apps might. It’s able to simultaneously cross-post to Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare. The last two surprising, I haven’t come across an app that posts to those services before.

It’s great, but I can’t quite put my finger on what specifically excites me about this app so much. I guess it’s just made taking iPhone photos fun again.

In any case, it’s free and I think you should check it out.

3 Videos I Discovered Today

Here are 3 videos I discovered today.

Un. Yo Gabba Gabba’s Muno skating through some LA landmarks. This is one ad campaign that actually worked, I need to buy those shoes for my sons ASAP.

Duex. Henry Rollins vs Hipsters. He’s a little defensive about his age these
days.

Trois. The Warrior’s Way Trailer. Three words: steampunk, western, ninjas.

NaBloPoMo Day 2

Apparently along with every other made invented cause assigned to the month of November it’s also Nation Blog Post Month – a challenge to write a daily blog post every day this month. While I assume the “National” in NaBloPoMo refers to the USA, I’m am going to take of the challenge and try my best to write a post every day. Even if it’s really short and not so pithy.
