For some time I've been playing with my iPhone and Flook, a new location browser with photos cooked up by a blog friend (Enidd) from Kiev. In fact I finally got the iPhone because of it.
Those of you with Twitter updates will already have noticed, but for those who don't know what I'm talking about, see the links to Flook on the righthand panel of the blog, or here (Vilnius) and here (Alaska) etc.
Somehow I would never bother to surf to look what a glacier looks like. But if one is put in front of me by Flook, and there's a map of exactly where it is and an explanation of who took the photo and why, it's a lot of fun.
On the other hand, people who post a card with a photo of their room, are missing the point. As Jane (alias Enidd) says: My favourite flooks have a great photo and let me know a quirky secret or a little-known local restaurant: perfect for my style of blogging on the move.
