“Resistance is futile,” was the motto of the Borg on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, I resisted for a long time but I’ve finally given in and joined the 150 million folks who are already using Instagram.
The goal is not to replace this blog—far from it—but to utilize yet another social media channel to share photos I take on my cell phone. Instagram offers a variety of tools to process photos, add effects, etc.—all on the fly, right from your mobile device. The image quality isn’t great, but these pictures are primarily meant to be consumed on a small mobile display anyway.
I started to use Instagram at the beginning of my Southern California/Arizona trip and have had a lot fun with it over the last five days.
