Archiving my Flickr photos and drawings
By Dave Winer on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 2:42 PM.

One of the things on my todo list for a long time is to get systematic about backing up my Flickr pictures.  #

I've finally got an app that seems to be fairly bulletproof, I wrote it carefully to check on itself. There's no point having a backup if you aren't fairly sure that you've got everything. And all the metadata is backed up too. #

Now I'm running the app. By my calculations it should take about 15 hours. #

While I'm waiting, I wrote a little readout page that shows the last ten pictures that have been archived, in reverse-chronologic order. It's kind of interesting to watch them roll by. Especially because it picks them in random order, so there's no telling where or when you're going to go next. #
