PostSubject: Former Windows 95 Architect Now Developing for iPhone (PhotoShare)   Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:37 am

Cult of Mac reports on the latest efforts by Satoshi Nakajima, the former lead architect of Microsoft's Windows 95. Two years ago, My Nakajima picked up a Mac and apparently, couldn't be happier. According to the the author, "He was so impressed, he says he’ll never touch a PC again."

Based on this enthusiasm, Nakajima has since started a company in April called Big Canvas with plans to develop for Apple's iPhone platform full time. Their first product called PhotoShare [free, App Store] was released at the App Store launch.

PhotoShare is a free photo sharing service that allows you to share photos you've taken on your iPhone in real time to your friends and family. The service is reminiscent of Twitter, except instead of sending text messages, you are sending captioned photos of your life events. Nakajima explains further in his blog:

As you can see, the behavior is very different from blogging or flickering. They post pictures very often (sometime several posts in an hour), expecting viewers to see them in sequence and respond to them in real-time.

This behavior is much more like Twitter-style behavior, which I call, "real-time life-logging" or "live photo-casting". Everybody has their own unique life experience, and applications like PhotoShare allows users to share those experiences in real-time.

I think this is the beginning of true "always-connected" life-style, which people in this industry have been talking about several years but was not be able to achieve. Apple came into this wireless market in 2007, and suddenly became the leader by enabling this new life-style with iPhone and App Store.
A video tutorial of the application is Big Canvas's website. Images uploaded from your iPhone can later be a managed at BCPhotoShare.com.
