Okay, I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't have sold my TiVo last year. If nothing else, this Flickr API and TiVo HME Experiment would have given me a nice way to browse photos from the comfort of the recliner.
Of course, I can do that with a laptop and get a higher resolution at the same time. But still. Isn't that cool? :-)
This is exactly the kind of stuff that can happen in the Web 2.0 world when vendors think of themselves as not just service providers or hardware vendors. If you think of yourself as platform for developers and invest a bit of support getting them started, a ton of interesting stuff seems to sprout.
Many companies could learn a lesson from this--including the one I work for. How about an IMVironment SDK for starters?
