    Really, really good detailed step-by-step look at how various services get users signed up. (via Tom Taylor)

  2. Picture This: U.S. Cities Under 12 feet of Sea Level Rise | Climate Central

    Altered photos showing what parts of some US cities will look like. Always reminds me of that bit in one of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars books where they go back south-east England, chimney tops poking out of the sea. (via @greatdismal)

    @smagdali Well yes, but there was only a bandwagon to jump on!

    @paulpod I'm pleased the modern house site is slightly clunky to search on, or I'd spend too much time there.

    @jennschiffer github.com/philgyford/twe… uses express. I tried to work out what a sensible structure was but I was learning as I went.

    YES BANDWAGONS HAVE CAMELS.

    I've been trying hard to not jump hastily on the "Flickr is ruined beyond hope" bandwagon but this camel's back can't take many more straws.

    So almost no reason to not just cross-post from Instagram, and make Flickr even more of a ghost town.

    So you can add hashtags in a photo's title in the Flickr iOS app. But they stay there. And you can't add a description. And no editing.

    @revdancatt @smagdali Thanks both. I, just, oh I don't know any more.

    Is there no way to add tags to a photo in the newish Flickr iOS app, or have I missed it?

    @mattsheret @flaneur ‘Seeing Other People’ came up on shuffle earlier and I thought it’d been too long, so, yes, “Like”.
