The extent of flickr-ness keeps receding like the edge of the universe. Today, I stumbled upon flickr Scout which allows you to find which of your photos have made it to the spotlight of the flickr Explore! page— on a daily basis, flickr pops here the 500 photos uploaded in one day with the highest level of “interestingness”. The Scout not only finds your photos in this pig pile, but tracks their current level.
So of course, it’s all about feeding the ego!
I did not think my scouting results would come up with 5, and of these 4 are not ones myself would say are all that interesting (and the one I do like is not the conference bag ;-)
And even cooler! The flickr scout creates a graphic of your results, and uploads it directly to flickr for you:
And there are a lot more toys from where this one came from.
