Why this web site?
Why a web site for panorama photos? Why trying to make yet another photo community on the Internet? I thought I should try to explain what I think in this blog on which this is the first post.
If you have clicked through this website you've probably noticed that I'm no professional panorama photographer. And I like it that way! Panorama photography is just a hobby, a quite new hobby in fact. But I have a long history as a photographer and I do a lot of sports photography professionally.
Web development is another one of my interests, in fact I have a university degree in Computer Science and I have been using the Internet since 1994. Building stuff has always interested mine... I need to build stuff, in some sense, all the time! So this is why I built Panogio. I wanted to build a web community and Panorama photography seemed to be the perfect thing to build it around. Basically that's it. No case studies :-)
I have a lot of ideas on functions I would like to build for this website but the time and money make it a slow process. That is why I believe it is best to make new functions public as soon as possible so that you, the user, can give me feedback and stop me from wasting time on the things no one will use!
There are already a few panorama photography web sites in the Internet. Some of them are really, really, good. I believe I can make Panogio to be as good as they, and with some new features...
Next post will be about something interesting!
