Tokyo2Point0

Attended the Tokyo2Point0 get-together yesterday, at Fujimama's.

Two web apps were introduced.


  1. http://www.photohito.com/

    This is a photo-sharing site by kakaku.com. It is very focused on cameras and lenses, and the photography aspect of photo-sharing. It ties in with the kakaku.com product database via their API, so that when you upload a photo you are presented with hierarchical pull-down menus that allow you to enter camera and lens information. I've noticed that other photo-sharing sites like Flickr and Photobucket also display some camera information which gets embedded into the JPEG header by the digital camera. photohito.com takes this camera / photography aspect to a different level.


  2. http://www.pressarmy.com

    This is a site for viral projects. You can set up a profile page for your project. It is then used to track buzz about said project in the media and the blogosphere.

All in all it was a good time. The house wine at Fujimama's was a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon.
