Flickr Bits

flickrid.pngRemember Flickr, the photo-sharing application that launched a thousand snapshots? Here’s a wittier line: it’s also launched a thousand mash-ups.

Have you ever seen a piece of software that lets you take its code and use it for something even cooler? API is the keybuzzword here. Related to the service, but in a new, cooler way? They call it Flickr Bits, but I the name didn’t seem to catch on.

Of course, it’s Flickr’s naming scheme that did.
