  1. So… ActiveX is Web 2.0 now? Good to know. I guess that means Flash is Web 2.0 too. And Java applets, and Firefox extensions, and … I guess we’ve had Web 2.0 for quite a while now! Even, like, through that whole Web 1.0 stage! Pretty cool!

    Or, wait, is PhotoSynth Web 2.0 because at some stage it’s supposed to maybe allow you to share your photos with a community and merge them into a borderless, virtualised photo-world?

    Well, here’s an idea: why don’t we wait until it actually *does* that before we call it Web 2.0.

  4. Loke: I will have a video up of Photosynth tomorrow done by Gary Flake. It simply is the most amazing demo I’ve seen this year. Stunning. Stunned me into silence.

  5. What’s interesting is the ability for Photosynth to create a 3D cloud from a collection of photos. All you have to do is to point it at a series of photos and there you go.

    imagine what it would be like if Photosynth was pointed at Flickr.

    amazing.

  7. The initial experience of virtual walk is excellent…infact amazing too. But I still doubt if this app depends bit more on the skills of photographer too?

    Right now, it is not important that whether an application is being supported in my browser or not. Many of the famous apps are not released for mac or linux by default. They ported the apps in later stages. When I write a consumer level app like photosynth, i would prefer to target larger browser market share rather than passionated 10% firefox share. Atleast in my first phase of release…is’nt it?

    It’s a simple rule of software development..geeks might miss it in thier thoughts…:-)

  9. Looks pretty neat. The technology seems to be able to extract ‘likeness’ from photos ala like.com plus do a whole lot more stuff. It makes me wonder how novel like.com’s tech really is.

  13. Seems very nice. It comes across as an evolution of some excellent software called that adobe gobbled up and did nothing with. I forget the name now, but it began with a ‘C’

    I always wanted something more to come of this sort of tech..
