Selective Amnesia There was a point to this. But I forgot.

Dumble – Auto tumbling Delicious links

Deepak wrote a little (but awesome) script some time back for his tumble-blog. It pulled bookmarks from his del.icio.us account and converted them into a page of super links, with commentary. He called it Dumble – Delicious + Tumble-log.
I liked it and asked him if I could borrow the script for SelAm and my delicious bookmarks. The dude not only gave me permission to do it, but he did the whole thing himself, and that’s how we come to SelAm/Dumble.

The beauty of Dumble is that it not only links, but it automatically converts links to a flickr photo or youtube video into the actual media. Right there on top of my Dumble page is the photo I shot a little while back. On delicious, it is just a link. Here, it’s a photo with the commentary. Brilliant, I say!

I post something or the the other every day to delicious. So you might want to keep a tab on SelAm/Dumble.

  1. Thanks Krishnan.

    Yes, luck, rather opportunity (very different words no?) plays a part in making the photo perfect.
    Henri Cartier Bresson called it the ‘Decisive Moment’

    One of the best photography tip I got once from a pro-photog was f8 and Be there. That is brilliant. (I later learnt that ‘f8 and be there’ is a global tip)

    Deepak: Thanks man. Yeah, will change the title.

  2. Cool.. so it’s finally up ๐Ÿ™‚ Why not change the page title to something else?

    Now that it is being used, I must find time to roll out some more enhancements to dumble ๐Ÿ™‚

    And thanks for the shout-out!

  3. Foggy morning, a lonely crow, Marina – I remember reading somewhere that photographers need to have a lil’ bit of luck to be in the right place at the right time to take the best of snaps. Guess it’s true!
