Buzz Killer Card Promises End To That Annoying Buzz When Phones And Audio Intersect


min.us is a new and super simple way to make online slideshows. Simply drag photos from your computer to your browser window and you’ve got a slideshow. Each show gets a nice short URL you can post to Twitter or Facebook, and each show also gets a second short URL for you to bookmark if you want to edit the show. No need to log in, no OAuth or OpenID tomfoolery. Brilliant.

The whole thing is powered by Javascript and HTML5 for modern browsers, with a fallback to Flash for legacy browsers. The server resides in Amazon’s EC2 compute cloud with S3 storage of photos. Powered by Python and Django and MySQL, min.us was prototyped in about a month by two guys.
