This distracted me from client work yesterday. I tried modifying WP-Cumulus to load thumbnail images from a Flickr RSS feed instead of passing it WordPress tags. The results surprised me, because I was expecting to see all sorts of depth sorting weirdness. However, because of the limited number of images and the way I distributed them over the sphere, you can hardly spot any quirks.
Would you like me to pursue this further, and possibly release a WordPress plugin? Or perhaps I could convert it into an HTML widget that works on all types of websites. I’d have to look into that, but it might be fun. And what would I call it? Every cool-sounding name I’ve been able to come up with turned out to be taken by some Web 2.0 startup I knew nothing about .
