Three Years of Flickr: My Top Ten Pictures – Part 1

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007 | Pictures, Technology

Today I wondered which of my Flickr photos have the most views. I hadn’t checked for a while so some in the top ten were surprises.

Lets start with #10 At the Pool of the Palms (963 views)
This is the only picture in the top ten which does not have a proper name on Flickr. It was taken at the pool of the Palms hotel in Las Vegas. My brother is ordering a drink from a hot waitress. Initially I was wondering why this is in the top ten but then I realized it is right next to the number 1 picture…

#9 Homebrew Computer Club Retrospective (1232 views)
Homebrew Computer Club Retrospective
Taken with a cell phone camera at the 30th anniversary of the Homebrew Computer Club at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. This is one of a number of pictures in the top 10 with a lot of geek appeal. Hey it even features Steve Wozniak.

#8 My little handheld computing history exhibition (1267 views)
My little handheld computing history exhibition
Another computer history related picture. This collection actually sits in a corner of my office. My favorite is the Sony MagicLink in the back. Back in 1996 I worked on an interesting project between a German telecommunication company and General Magic.

#7 Prototype Ebay client based on Adobe Apollo (1273 views)

This is the newest top ten picture. It was taken at the 2006 Adobe Max conference. I think this was the first time the E-Bay Apollo Prototype was demonstrated in public. Time will tell if this becomes a historic photo (I certainly hope so).

#6 Crowded Booth at SAP TechEd 2005 in Vienna (1301 views)
Crowded Booth
I have no idea how this picture made it to number 5. I assume it was linked in a Blog or on the SAP Developer Network. I guess never underestimate the power of the SAP developer ecosystem.

The top 5 will come soon. So look out for my next post, including the number 1 picture with 18862 views (and counting).
