Writing about web page http://bit.ly/facebphotos
Facebook is finally going to update its photo system. After several years of being not very good at all, it's going to get a nice update which will include:
1) uploading/downloading photos of up to 2048 pixels (width/length);
2) bulk tagging (yay!); and
3) lightbox (meh)
Only downside appears to be ads, but I don't mind that so long as they're not overly intrusive.

Just watching "CNN Connects: Our Networked World". It's basically a round table discussion on the "new" explosion of internet usage in the form of Youtube and the like.
It's a relatively interesting discussion. There's a co-founder of Flickr, the founder of Facebook, the CEO of Orange etc.
But, as usual, the presenter is absolutely clueless concerning the current world of the internet and just reeks of condescension and stupidity. In between lame jokes about Second Life and The Matrix and rampant hand-waving, she comes up with gems like this:
"If Web 2.0 is more than just a marketing gimmick, then there will be a Web 3.0, won't there?"
I don't understand why the big broadcasting networks don't hire people who are genuinely into the field. It's like they called up the weather team and asked them to pick a weather girl at random to present a tech show. Makes me want to throw the TV out of the window.
