Web Appplication Wednesday – Voyeur Edition

So, picture twitter in your mind – now replace every little micro-blog with a photo.  Does that sound interesting.  I didn’t think so either, but I tried iTookThisToday out anyways.  It is much more intriguing than I originally expected.

It is almost like a photo-twitter, and it meets some sort of sordid voyeuristic need that I have to see the world through other peoples eyes.  The iTookThisToday people put it best:

Here’s how it works:
1. You snap a picture, probably with your phone.
2. You email the picture to photos@itookthistoday.com
3. Your picture is posted at the top of the list.

You can browse the photos or add yours to the growing list of frozen moments in history.  As I was browsing them, I had the sense that the service was a bit like flicker.com, a little like twitter, but the combination of the two creates a sort of simplistic and impromptu beauty.

Give iTookThisToday a test drive and see if you are as captivated by it as I am.  There is a chance I am just weird and like it because of some odd voyeuristic fetish I have, but then again, maybe your weird too.
