Wow. My little blog nearly exploded from all of the traffic from my Flickr post. I mean, holy freakin cow.
I think my CEO is planning to do some sort of follow-up on his blog (http://www.geekceo.com) later this week.
We did finally conclude that:
1. Flickr does not alter your original photo
2. Flickr does enhance the other sizes and openly admits it (not to mention it's way more sinister than I thought).
3. Zoto 3.0 will be auto-enhancing photos when we launch in March but we will also have an option to to disable this feature.
I think best part of the hoopla was reading all of the comments. I was really blown away by the amount of response. So thanks for all of your comments. Even the anonymous ones (you silly weenies). I also realize, in hindsight, that calling someone a numnut in response to a negative reddit comment is, ahem, possibly a tad unprofessional. And as for that guy who asked me if I passed the turing test, ha-freakin-ha.
Oh, and the photo from my flickr post is not soup. It's my italian chicken chili. The recipe is here.
Ok. Time to go back to blogging about patterns and stuff.
