I’d like to see more tools to automate this sort of image blogging.


A still version of a similar regular shooting effort is here.

This blog as of yesterday displayed as a graph using Websites as Graphs, a tool (java applet) that builds and displays a graph based on the Document Object Model (DOM) of a given URI.
