For the past month or so, I’ve been one of a handful of people testing out some new software that Dave Winer cooked up. It’s called FlickrFan it’s now available for anyone who wants to try it out.

It connects your flickr account to your desktop, backs up your flickr photos, and connects them to your screensaver.

The thing I use most is to power a screensaver on our big flat panel HDTV screen with the flickr photostreams of my friends and loved ones. If you have a flickr account and a mac, give it a try.

    I think you’ll like this……It’s a FlickrFan feed that pulls concert photos from Flickr based on the bands you’re listening to from

        I assumed you traveled with a 60″ HDTV and a Mac Mini carry on. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    I’m curious what differentiates it from 1001(…”1001 not only uploads photos to your Flickr account, it notifies you anytime new photos from either your contacts, everyone, or your favorite tags are uploaded1001 allows you to step into the stream of photos passing through Flickr and to quickly see what’s new at the moment. Just run the app in the background and if triggered, 1001 pops up a small unobtrusive window to notify you of new photos.1001 comes with a Flickr screensaver that will incrementally display the latest image from Flickr. You do not need to have 1001 installed to use this screensaver.”
