Today Zooom Mark III plans to launch. This is an update to Zooomr.com that has been 9 months in the making and adds over 250 new features, improvements, and refinements. It adds a social element as well as the ability for photographers to sell their photos as stock.
Zooomr is a photo sharing site similar to Flickr. Users can create an account and upload their photos for all the world to view and share. The site was created by one programmer, Kristopher Tate (CTO) and has been highly promoted by Thomas Hawk, who is also the CEO of Zoomr.
For the past two days Kristopher and Thomas have been live on Ustream.tv talking about the launch and answering questions about Zooomr Mark III and photography via the UStream chat box. They plan to stay live until Zooomr launches (ETA is this afternoon).
To my knowledge this is the first time a web site has launched (or relaunched in the case of Zooomr) live. The launch also was written up on TechCrunch.
The “meta” picture was taken with my Nikon D40 after asking Thomas for a picture shot.
