For those who have just crawled out of their caves, flickr is an insanely popular repository of photos for any netizen worth his or her salt. On this site you first create an account for yourself and before you can say ‘CHEESE’ all those special moments that you captured on your digital camera can be uploaded to your account for the world to drool over.

A certain David Troy decided to combine Google Maps with flickr to come up with flickrvision. Here you can watch as new photos are uploaded from various parts of the world in real time. And I can tell you that its a nonstop phenomenon. The world never sleeps and the pics never stop coming. There is even a screensaver for this but only for Mac OSX though. For the observer, it has a hypnotic quality not unlike trainspotting. Try it out for yourself. Me, I am thoroughly addicted.
