Upcoming.org and Flickr

Gonna try something new here…

To all the lucky, lucky fans who will be going to the autograph signing at the Virgin Megastore in Hollywood on September 26th, take lots of pictures, like, as many candid shots as you can. Get shots of the store outside, get shots of the people waiting in line, get shots of the signing area before Al arrives, etc… Then, if you don’t have one already, get yourself a nice Flickr account (they’re free!) and upload all your photos from the day for the world to see. But how can you share with the other Al fans that amazingly awesome pic you got of Al picking his nose? Easy! Just add this super special tag to them…

upcoming:event=107089

What the heck is THAT and what would this accomplish??? Well quite simply, with that code Flickr can automatically link to and add your pictures to this Upcoming.org event listing for the in-store signing. Upcoming.org is a free site where people can keep track of nearby events, have discussions, share pictures, etc… So this seems like an excellent way of sharing your uber-cool Al experience with the world.

Note: The free Flickr account does limit you to uploading only 20MB worth of pictures every month. Fortunately, the limit does reset itself on the midnight of the first of every month. So get in as much as you can before Sept 30th, then when it’s Oct 1st, you’ll have another 20MB to upload. Yay!

Hope to see some great photos from YOU! Maybe I’ll feature some of them here (with permission of course).

    Unfortunately there’s not much that can be done about that, unless you plan on making a huge trek across the country. Hopefully, we can all bask in the awesome pictures others will take.
