PixelPipe Releases Personal Media Syndication Service

Given the rising popularity of social media services, it’s not uncommon for someone to have their photos scattered across a handful of sites, like Facebook, Flickr, or a personal blog. Unfortunately, adding new media to these services can be a pain - most people find themselves picking and choosing where to upload their photos rather than taking the time to create new albums across all of their online presences.

San Francisco-based PixelPipe is looking to solve this problem by offering a personal syndication service that is akin to a Ping.fm for media. After entering credentials for any of the site’s 50+ supported services, PixelPipe will automatically distribute any new audio files or images to all of your profiles. You can also choose to group these services by tags, so you can be more selective (for example, I could use a tag to upload a set of images to Pownce and Friendfeed, but not my blog).

While PixelPipe supports many of the most popular media sites (as well as blog platforms), CEO Brett Butterfield says that it is also aiming for a more global approach, and will begin to integrate a number of smaller and more local services.

The site offers a standard web upload interface, as well as an array of native clients and plugins for Mac, Windows, and Linux, including a modified version of the open-source Flickr uploader, an iPhoto plugin, and an iPhone client. There are also more generic upload methods, like a personalized email address (I was assigned the curious name of gangrening128).

PixelPipe is offering a powerful and useful service, though its lifespan may be limited. At some point, these media services will begin to adopt more open policies, allowing users to transfer photo albums and their corresponding metadata (like tags), without having to turn to a third party. But this may still be years off, and for the time being, PixelPipe is worthwhile solution.

Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
