PicLens is Cool

PicLens is a great "plugin" /"add on" for your web-browser... (i'm using firefox on a mac with OS X) .

It allows you to view web images embedded in an infinite grid up against a virtual 'black wall'. From there you can fly over, zoom in and out- and play a slideshow. I use it for showing the kids stuff from flickr ... we watched a slideshow of "hot air ballons" over breakfast this morning.

It's so cool i'm thinking about setting this up in the waiting room. The flickr tag system is great: i tested it out with the search terms "calm" , "portrait", "landscape" etc and didn't find anything that could be thought to be porn.... Here's a youtube of the software in action.
