How to

Santa, I’ve been Naughty, And This Is What I Want In My Stocking!

Santa's Little HelperYes, I am a demanding little girl, even with Santa.

For 2010, I just have a few little things on my list, not too much to ask for I don’t think!

  1. That Panoramio would get a better picture uploader.  Come on!  One at a time?  Why don’t you just ask iPhoto for a quick upload button like Flickr has and we’d all be happy. (I also will add to that list more robust profiles for contributors)
  2. The Foursquare, Brightkite, Gowalla or DailyPlaces would create a map-widget showing all my check-ins in real time with links to photos, etc.  First one to make it goes on my blog!
  3. That someone would come up with a really good Word Press plug-in which allows me to show a map of ALL my geo-tagged photos, blog posts, etc. for my blog.  This I really really want (pout!) (sssshhhh  I am currently investigating something that might come close, stay posted!)
  4. That Posterous would push to Foursquare, Brightkite, Gowalla and/or DailyPlaces so I can REALLY have One Push Publishing
  5. That the GPS Locator in my Coolpix P6000 would move FASTER than a turtle in a molasses mud bath! (but otherwise I <3 my Coolpix)

Now, if you are a good little Elf and know that I am going to get any of these things or where I can find them if Santa thinks I was too naughty to give them to me, please speak up below before I have a full blown tantrum.

Have you been naughty or nice? Have something on your Santa List?  Let’s hear it!

    Sounds reasonable to me. C’mon Santa, deliver the goods, Janie’s been a good girl.

    #3 sounds super cool, I’m putting that on my Christmas List too.

    Cheers and Happy Holidays.

    Thanks Ken!

    I really really am hoping for a great WP Plugin like that. There must be one out there. But just think if you could have a mash-up map (or hyper-local maps) of your communities, showing pin points and links to your photos, blogs, restaurants, listings, etc. All the info is there, it just needs to be pulled together. I think we will see it for sure in 2010.

    I wish there was a way that all pictures I take with a Palm Pre would automatically upload, geotag, etc. to my desired destination (Posterous as a photo blog) without having to do anything besides click. As it stands I have to email it which is the simplest method but still takes extra time!

    For #3 try I hoping they make it a little more user friendly, but it does display map with points referenced in your blog posts.

    I want a geeked out Airstream so I can go ‘camp out’ in Montana and Wyoming and blog, write, do more photographs, chase Cowboys, and feed my horse website (and maybe start a new RE site!).

    All the best in 2010 Ms. Janie!

    Hi Janie, missing your Florida POIs… I love Posterous and pushing from this service to Dailyplaces is on my wishlist to. As for the WordPress/Widget thing: we can already build such things since we have a real mature Developer API. For instance the Website and the iPhone App are using this API and the uprising Android App is doing the same. The only problem is: time ;-(

    HI Rafael

    What an honor to have the co-founder of Dailyplaces visit my blog! I have requested the push from Posterous, I hope they listen 😉 As soon as you have the time for the WP plugin, let me know, it would be such a super great tool for bloggers to be able to highlight their adventures via on their blogs. I know quite a few real estate bloggers would be all over such a feature!

    Keep up the good work, and I’m sorry for the vacation, but I just posted a new POI, check it out from Frozen Florida
