Fun Flickr Fotos! Back in 2008, the year after the first iPhone launched, there was a little site highlighted as one of the top 100 websites by PCmag.com. Many of those sites featured in the top 100 don’t even exist today. Gone! However, one of the sites that, for whatever reason, still exists is: TagGalaxy.de Here’s a brief write-up from 2008 that summarizes TagGalaxy:
Visual representations of data are nothing new, but Tag Galaxy takes it to new heights in searching Flickr photos. Enter a single keyword (I used “frog”) and you’ll see a 3D representation of a solar system with the keyword as the sun, orbited by related word “planets” (e.g., “amphibian,” “green,” and “toad”). Click a planet to combine keywords, or just click the sun (your main keyword) to get a unique photo-sphere covered with up to 236 images pulled from Flickr. Spin it in any direction with the mouse, clicking shots for close-ups. It takes a while to surf them all this way, but makes for a fascinating time waster. [reference]
