1. 72ppi Home Page


72ppi is a photoblog that I created to take advantage of digital photo publishing before Flickr or Picassa had gained mainstream popularity. I redeveloped the site in Django in 2010 after hacking at and extending MovableType, an off-the-shelf blogging platform, for many years. The new system made it significantly simpler to comment on photos, introduced a new hackable URL architecture, tagging, geo locations, and generally attempted to promote user exploration and discovery.
