Zooomr, an incredibly advanced, feature-rich, photo sharing community much like Flickr, offers free Pro accounts to bloggers who sign up and link to Zooomr. For one year, they allow four gigabytes monthly of full resolution image uploading, storage, viewing, linking, and downloading. They promise to allow full access to the images after the first year, even if those Pro accounts do not renew, what an offer!
On the fore, Zooomr uses only alternative logins, such as Open ID, an emerging way to reuse your identity across multiple sites. Since Brad Fitzpatrick here at LiveJournal invented Open ID, naturally users of LiveJournal, Vox, and other Six Apart platforms can log into Zooomr and create an account without creating yet another identity and maintaining another password. Open ID lets users on these and all other enabled servers login into Zooomr and not only post images but also comment on others. Zooomr also admits Google, Gmail, and Meetro identities. Put simply, unlike Flickr, which requires users create and use a Yahoo identity, Zooomr admits all LiveJournal users without yet another login. Quite a boon for replying, isn't this how social media should work!
Google members can join on verifying their identity. LiveJournal keepers could follow the instructions posted at Zooomr, but rather than use MyOpenID, simply log into Zooomr and create your account! Bypassing MyOpenID frees you from its Terms of Service, a lengthy and vague license for a brave new tangled legal world with an identity service for a fourth party. Instead, Zooomr asks only a brief set of rules.( proof…Collapse )
I had long promised to start writing my LiveJournal, and not only use it for replies. Well, here i am. This all seems a lot for a “Hello, World”, but i tend to program like this anyway.
