This doesn’t look quite right, why would a bank (where BTW I have no card/account) ask me to fill in an attached form?

Geotagging is the process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media…
Let’s see how this works for pictures. There are several reasons for doing that:
- You want to remember where was it that you took some great picture.
- Or, you want to brag about it and show your friends the places you’ve visited.
I won’t question your reasons; if you’ve read so far, I assume you’re really interested in how to do it. It’s quite easy: buy yourself a camera with integrated GPS. A phone (or an iPhone). It will automatically add geotags to your photos’ EXIF information.
Or, if you already have a camera (or phone) and a GPS receiver, why not use the data recorded by the GPS and cross-reference it with your photos’ date and time. You only need to:
Today is the first day of Cisco Expo 2008 Romania. The venue is Radisson SAS
My colleagues from Cronus are there too, doing some presentation, contributing to a workshop and running a series of quizzes about Cisco: trivia, junior and expert technical knowledge.
If you’re there don’t forget to take the quizzes, either using the IP video-phones on location or with your laptop/mobile via the provided WLAN. They’re offering a lot of presents to top scorers: hourly, daily and a grand prize.
Covering the event (in Romanian) so far:
LinkedIn launched a new feature yesterday: applications platform. So far the most interesting seem to be:
- Blogs: WordPress and it’s counterpart, Blog Links, for those using TypePad – allows you to display the latest entries from your blog on your profile page. You can use a special tag to filter out some of the entries.
- Company Buzz – updates on what’s being said about your company
- Amazon Reading List – book lists sharing
- TripIt – travel info sharing
I’m sure this is only a small step towards opening a whole new social API and, given their user base, they might just succeed in bringing to business what others so far have failed to. I look forward to new applications.
It also seems they started to automatically push a new feature called Company Groups. This used to be an on-demand feature and is probably based on company profiles and statistics. If one of the companies you worked for has a profile then you might find out you’ve been added to a new group along with other coworkers:
Google stepped up yesterday with two launches: a web browser (Chrome) and updated versions of PicasaWeb and Picasa 3 picture management software. I won’t comment much on Chrome, except that it seems very fast and wheel-like scrolling up doesn’t work on my laptop’s touchpad… and I miss the dedicated search box (I really do).
But the new PicasaWeb features something really cool: face recognition. It will analyze all your uploaded pictures and find faces, then group them together and ask for you to assign names/persons. This is not new, Riya’s been doing this for some time already, right? Yeah, but my experience with Riya wasn’t the greatest and I found it almost unusable while PicasaWeb simply… just works.
That’s WOW in my dictionary! Continue reading
