Playing Flickr!
August 16th, 2005

Monique van Dusseldorp illustrates on Poynter Online some personal publishing options using Flickr. She reveals that Flickr was originally developed as a massive multi-player online game, as explained in a recent interview by Eric Costello.

Monique wrote Smartmobs that the best Flickr game of them all will be played for the second time in Amsterdam in September, in the building where she happens to have her office as well.

(Thank you Monique for letting us know !!!)

Developed by Dutch new-media developers Mediamatic, Playing Flickr lets visitors of Club/Restaurant 11 in Central Amsterdam call up pictures by sending in SMS (text) messages on their phones. The pictures in Flickr with matching tags are immediately shown on the giant screens that adorn the restaurant.
