Upload your photos in an instant with Kflickr

Filed under
HowTos

Uploading pictures to Flickr via its Web-based interface is a hassle, particularly if you have dozens of shots to upload. Linux users have a better choice, though, in the form of Kflickr, a simple application for uploading shots to Flickr that will have your family photos online in no time.

I don't do much editing or tweaking of photos -- I just dump pics from my camera straight to the desktop, then to Flickr. Sure, you can use digiKam, F-Spot, or any of the other photo management tools that are capable of uploading pics to Flickr, but in the spirit of good Unixy apps, I prefer a tool that does one thing and does it well.

Get started

Kflickr is included in several distros, but the version included with Ubuntu Feisty is a bit behind the upstream version, so I grabbed the package from the Kflickr site. There you'll find source tarballs and a Debian package of the most recent version -- 0.8 as I'm writing this -- and a list of distros that include Kflickr. The Debian package installed just fine on Feisty.

Cloud convenience is killing the open source database

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
