Snaplog is a new Brooklyn-based startup looking to create a better iPhone photo application than comes with the phone itself. After taking a photo using the Snaplog app, you can change a variety of settings for each photo including: photo cropping; full frame or square, captions, tags, privacy settings and photo effects.
There are also exposure and saturation settings so you can adjust the lighting and look of each photo.
After you are satisfied with the settings on the photo, it can be emailed or posted to Twitter. It can also be saved into a public Snaplog stream. There’s also an option to create your own Snaplog page. The pages use a pretty nifty refresh system as you scroll up and down the page.
Here’s an example Snaplog – this is the account of the founder Robert Spychala. It appears that the Snaplog application will be available soon in the iTunes App Store.
Etsy CEO Rob Kalin presented last night at the NY Tech meeting. He began by flying a paper airplane in the air. Somehow I thought that was going to tie into his presentation, but it did not. In fact the airplane flew as far as the presentation went. Most of his presentation was actually speaking about the high oil prices and how these prices will seal off our borders and allow U.S. citizens to create products for other U.S. citizens and that Etsy will make the transactions possible. He also talked about family names for some reason.
He showed off a few of their tools – like the ability to select a color and see all of the products that they have available from their many thousand sellers using the Etsy platform. Kalin also noted that he doesn’t want Etsy to become as big as eBay.
He ended by talking about putting Walmart out of business or something – frankly the demo wasn’t impressive.
I’m writing to let you about a daily collaborative office space in Williamsburg @ The Change You Want to See Gallery < http://www.thechangeyouwanttosee.org/coworking >. We are addressing the needs of our changing work force – i.e. the emerging culture of freelancers, work-at-homers, work-at-cafe-folks, flex timers, writers, independents, programmers, designers, filmmakers, activists, etc… This "coworking" office and event-space encourages the cross-pollination of cultural producers. It’s a great place to meet like-minded folks and to get things done.
Currently, we are looking for new monthly coworkers. For $200 a month, we reserve you a chair, hand you a key and present you the opportunity to produce events @ The Change You Want to See Gallery. We also offer a barter for those who are in-between jobs.
Included in your monthly membership:
a community of like minded folks
a flux of interesting people
networking and expertise
fridge and microwave
quiet focused work environment with a dose of social libations
after-work drinks free after-work events relating to art/technology/activism/theory at the gallery
Additionally, we host the citywide "Work at Jelly" session and an open house/happy hour on the last Friday of every month.
Our doors are always open for daily drop-ins and "test drives" – so, don’t ever feel like a stranger!

Also, when you are planning your next Meetup, consider this to be a potential venue.
Hope to see you soon!
