Rants & Ramblings

random commentary about culture, media, politics, technology and whatnot.



This night calls for tea and kabobsSo after some prodding from a coworker, I’m finally on Instagram. It’s a social photo-sharing service kind of like Flickr, but entirely smartphone-focused.

I had resisted for so long because I’m kind of ambivalent about all the photo filters and because Flickr has served my needs just fine so far. But I’ve decided to at least give it a try. I do appreciate how very easy it is — they’ve definitely given the user interaction some thought. And it can autopost the photos I take to Flickr at the same time I post to Instagram. So we’ll see how this goes.

One downside of being a late adopter is that someone’s already snapped up the username “alykat.” So if you’re on Instagram, you can find me under my fallback username: “roguealy.”
