Flickr TagMan

Ok, no more TagMan versions. I've created a Flickr TagMan game. I think I like this version the best (well I still like the fact that Squidoo was cool enough to send me a logo for their version). When you win a game of Flickr TagMan, you'll see a few photos from that tag. You can then jump to Flickr and see more photos or play another game. Each game randomly grabs a tag from Flickr's popular tags page.

I think Technorati TagMan, Squidoo TagMan, TagMan and now Flickr TagMan covers the major web 2.0 sites that are using tags. I started writing TagMan (original version for Technorati tags) as a way to catch up with what's been happening with web 2.0. I signed up to be a developer and was tinkering with their API. Unfortunately, it wouldn't do what I wanted it to do and they didn't respond to my email queries, so I reverted to old school scraping. Oh well, I'll get back to reading the O'Reilly book "Programming Web Services with Perl" at a later date. In the meantime, let me know which TagMan version you like the best! I gotta get back to work...
