More Flickr Magic from KrazyDad

After finding the cool Spell with Flickr entertainment that I blogged about yesterday, I went digging for other things you can do with this popular tool besides simply posting photographs.

Happily, I stumbled across KrazyDad, a compendium of delightful and innovative entertainments brought to you by Jim Bumgardner, author of Flickr Hacks and programmer par excellence.

Jim has devised a number of must-see games, puzzles, and other diversions that you can interact with. Topping the list, for me, are his amazing Flickr innovations, which have to be seen to be believed. Check out Phyllotaxy, and then give Flickr Color Pickr a spin.

KrazyDad also offers a selection of exquisite kaleidoscopic screensavers and the Metascope screensaver maker. This utility scans the web for images on themes you specify and creates a kaleidoscopic screensaver from them. I haven't tried this tool yet, but it's certainly on my growing to-do list, especially as it gets a big thumbs-up from Tara Calishain, author of Google Hacks.

Jim's Springy Thingies is also fun, as is his Spyrographer. Check it out.
