So we just launched an awesome site for the iPhone App Instagram, we call it Copygram. The service lets you download all your Instagram photos to your local hardrive and then makes it really easy for you to order analog prints. What many haven’t noticed is that Copygram also provides an view over the entire public network of Instagram, just type any username after the http://copygr.am and you can view his or hers photos, just try out mine copygr.am/linusekenstam now try your own.
In the first 6 days a total of 106.000 photos have been downloaded. And way over 28.000 pageviews. We are so happy for making this project into reality. In an attempt to give everyone a chance and glimps of the Instagram community we wanted to build a way for everyone to be able to see what users on the instagram network are doing. So now you can share your copygram link to anyone, and anyone will be able to view your photos, with our without an Instagram account. To be able to find stuff, we built a search, you can search for users and tags.
This is easily the best invention i’ve read about this year in the cluster of horsepower gadgets. Right now all I can think of is the film The 5th Element with Bruce Willis and the chunky indian style flying cars.
So today I’m off to London over the weekend, going to see if there is anyone thats upp for a cup of coffee, we’ll be trying to make a couple of interviews with one or two readers from London on sunday, so make a comment if you want to get featured. Going to be super awesome to hook up for a block cup of Java… or Tea.. Now I need to organize my weekend bag.
In the latest post I ran thru some of the recents cities and people that come here for inspiration and ideas. Where do I get inspiration and ideas from, well of course you guys, without all the beautiful and creative content you create I wouldn’t be able to do the things i do.
Another thing that really gets me going except talking to people and brainstorming ideas is travelling, travel gets me going, make me feel part of it all, the big picture you see. Not just your workplace, your apartment block or your commute to work. I love the feeling I get when arriving to airports, it’s not the goal when travelling thats the fun part, it’s my way trying to get to the goal that fills my brain with positive thoughts and all the astonishing people you meet on the way towards the goal.
So whats your creative thrill?! Reading blogs maybe one of them, but try to be more analog, or digital doesn’t matter. Post in comments!
I hade a vision when i started the blog www.wearesuperfamous.com, a vision that my friends would browse to the site, look at some nice links that i chose to share with them and the rest of the world. Then came Facebook, that vision was destroyed. Then all these awesome bloggers appeared, they are the new realm of media creators & duplicators just like me. They want to share, create the content that others browse and like…
So what happend to the vision, well my friends might pop in, I really get no feedback, sometimes I do don’t get me wrong but mostly nothing. But something extraordinary did happen, the reach, the globality, last two weeks numbers, with almost 5500+ cities represented is just beautiful, I wished i was better with info graphics, maybe some reader out there is a statistic freak and can do something beautiful.
So with this little touch of information, I just want to say thank you to all of you who visit the site regularly, and even though the speed of the posts vary, it glads me that you still come visit.
Tragedy struck the surfing world last month with the news that Hawaiian big-wave surfer Sion Milosky has passed away. According to reports, Milosky lost his life while surfing 25-foot waves at Mavericks late afternoon March 16th 2011. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the big-wave legend. We salute you Sion Milosky, thank you for lifting the sport, you will always be remembered.
All our love goes to the families in Japan, that are in shelters and struggle for everyday survival. Our hearths are with those who lost friends and family members. We will always look back at Japan as a warning to the rest of us, that mother nature is violent and has no respect, as we have no respect for her.
