live blog: a snafu, a solution

Ran into a snafu: my plan to use the (non-techie) program iMapFlickr fell through. While a offering a slick, customizable interface, the service only allows one Flickr set per map – thereby dashing my plan to incorporate several users’ tea-related photos in one place.

I then had the idea of adding photos to a Flickr Gallery, where you can “curate up to 18 public photos or videos of fellow members.” Also a no-go because iMapFlickr only recognizes photos as inserted into your (or an individual’s) Photostream (the idea being that you/they claim photographic ownership).

That, I’m afraid, would defeat the purpose of creating an “if this, then that” third-party automation scenario.

The solution to my impending doom? Loc.alize.us, a product of Ubilabs. Based in Hamburg, Germany, the company recently updated its JavaScript code on GitHub (recent, working things are good!).
