We're already obsessed with allconsuming and 43things, the tag-friendly websites created by the robot co-op (and funded by Amazon.com) meant to help you keep track of what you and others are doing, attempting and consuming, but 43places might be even cooler. Smooth, glossy and elegant, 43places integrates flickr photos into this shared experience of travel and adventure. What we love about flickr is the fascinating way it allows us to see the world through other people's eyes. What we're loving about 43places is how it really focuses that by location. This is how others (with cameras) truly see the places they live, visit and love.
It could be our own intense wanderlust guiding us today but we've spent way too much time looking at cities we'll be visiting in the upcoming year (like Louisville) as well as places friends will be going (like Dublin) so we haven't yet considered how people are looking at our home town: Los Angeles.
