Spent a few minutes checking out Photophlow this afternoon. And wow, really love this. Photophlow was developed by Neil Berkman and striatic and it turns flickr from a static sort of photosharing site into a dynamic interactive experience complete with chat.
It’s hard to describe, but basically users congragate in chat rooms where they submit and discuss photos, can post to their twitter streams, can add contacts, fave photos etc.
The service uses the Flickr API to deliver a radically different and interactive version of Flickr.
The experience itself is very cool for someone like me. It’s a sort of hyperactive interactive visually stimulating community gathering of sorts. Real time. Real chat. Etc.
I’ve only just started using it today so I’m definitely a newbie, but plan on hanging out over there a bit more as I have time.
I’ll try to write up more on the service later, but for now I’ll just say that this is the most exciting and innovative thing I’ve seen in photosharing in a long, long time. Click through the photo above and view large to get a sense of what the site is about.
The site is invite only for now. I’ve got three invites. If you want one let me know your email address and I’ll invite you. First come first serve.
Update: Just gave my three invites out to the first three commenting on this post. I’ll try to send out more later when I get some.
Update #2: Phat Photographer also reviewed Photophlow as well here.
Update #3: Ok, Neil loaded me up with some more invites. I just invited everyone else who commented that want one. If you need one just leave a comment and I’ll get you one until I run out of these.

Great post! I’d love to try this out if you still have an invite.
Looks like I’m one post too late, but if you happen to wind-up with a spare, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I did see PhotoPhlow 2 days ago in a trackback on one of my photos……
I was intersted then, but didn’t take the time to sign up for their beta… it looks really rocking, and i’ve seen it show up in people’s twitter’s as well. I look to check it out more soon!

I’m excited to try this out. Just starting to make flikr work for me.
It is a great extension to flicker and it think the above comments are all right on.
I’d love to try it, if you’re giving out more.
I really like your work. Your street scenes are wonderful.
Thomas, I would love to check it out if you get more invites.
Would appreciate an invite as well.

Thomas if you like photophlow you will love voicethread. (voicethread.com) I stumbled on it this morning while reading through the blogosphere. Enjoy.
This actually looks like the original version of Flickr more than anything else. That’s a good thing, because those few of us who used it loved the original chat-based Flickr tools – and now it seems that more will get their chance.
But that’s just based on the demo – I’d love an invite if you have one left.
Invite please! Looks to be one of the most creative/innovative uses of the Flickr API that I have seen.
I’d love to get an invitation if you have any left. rrrodrigo at gmail dot com. Thanks!
Eric, invite on the way. Of course SmartSetr is another one of the most innovative ways I’ve seen the Flickr API used and one I use most every day myself ð
This is very creative… I’ve been frustrated at the sometimes slow pace of Flickr groups for feedback. For some reason, this feels better…
it’s amazing to see what flickr has enabled by opening their api. would love to try this out. mikanboy at gmail.
I’d be grateful for an invitation – roland dot dobbins at mac dot com.
Thanks so much!
An invitation would be nice. Thanks, Thomas.
