It's amazing how quickly you can bootstrap projects. I remember when I first build Lightbox7, it took weeks to get it into a testable stage. 

With the toolsets that are available to me, I might have a demoable product within a week. 

Over the past two days, I got individual image views (with easy arrow navigation) as well as the workflow for user login/registrations to view private albums done. 

I started working on the comments data model tonight, but I need to sleep. 

Originally, I wanted collections (curated albums within an album) to be in the v1, but I think I'm going to punt that to a v2. Tomorrow, I'm going to wrap up commenting (editing, deleting), and do a quick blog post on the status for the features I want in a v1 beta test. 

. . .

This project is great, cause it's also giving me ideas on how to revamp Tabulas' featureset. What I may end up doing is just bringing in a simpler version of this codebase into Tabulas! Yay! 

. . .

Been playing around with pricing - I originally was thinking $50/year for 10,000 images... but that seems really expensive. I'm actually leaning towards offering a monthly plan - $4.99/month for 5,000 images after reading this post

And to those of you who help me beta test, free 10,000 image accounts for life!

I'll beta test, for sure. Since I got my 5D, I've been taking a lot more pictures, trying to get better.
