I've been playing with Stupeflix this evening and have just discovered that it allows you to create a TV channel based on feeds from both Twitter and Flickr. Once you've identified your key words (I just used @creativetallis for Twitter and creativetallis for Flickr) Stupeflix automatically generates a TV-like programme featuring the relevant content. I've also tried to make a couple of Stupeflix presentations but with less success. They seem to be having difficulty with their servers this evening. I'll try again tomorrow.
Anyway, I can think of lots of interesting uses for Stupeflix TV. Imagine typing in searches for popular hashtags in Twitter (let's say #fairtrade) and keywords in Flickr and creating an up-to-date feed of the latest images and tweets from across the world on any particular topic? Cool. As you can see from the example above, these channels can then be embedded in your blog to share with your audience.
What do you think?
