More Links From The Streets

Fresh on the heels of the Grafedia project, we now have Blockies (courtesy of the Eyebeam ReBlog).

Blockies are stickers that link to photos and are used with camera phones. Each sticker has a unique code which can be linked to a photo that you designate to it. Other users/viewers can punch the sticker code into their phones to see your pic. As an added feature, they can also add their photo to yours, making an album in a single location, using a single sticker. So far, it looks like only NYC is playing. And most of the linked photos are repeaters from the same source. It will be interesting to see if this project gets fully under way.

Overall, I prefer the Grafedia Project. The idea of hand rendered hyperlinks throughout cities is much more interesting. If only they linked to video and/or audio as well.
