The key

Recently we applied to Flickr for a “non-commercial API key” – in other words, permission to connect our photo account to our snazzy new website.

Dear Flickr,

We’re launching a web magazine called The Literary Bohemian. Launch date is Nov. 1. The “we” in The Literary Bohemian consists of two nice people named Carolyn and Colin.

Carolyn is a writer who operates a hostel in Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic, and The Literary Bohemian will be a non-profit money pit of a project that marries her dual interests of writing and traveling.

Colin is Carolyn’s personal web designer and sidekick from the north, a fellow writer and conspirator, loyal cohort and partner in crime.

The Literary Bohemian will feature fabulous poetry, short fiction and travelogue, guaranteed to get nobody rich quick. In short, we’re as non-commercial as Karl Marx wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt that was stolen from the back of an anarchist.

Here’s where you come in. We made a Flickr group where we’ve asked people to add their photos. If you give us an API key, we’ll use it to pull images from the group and display them on the site. We will give credit where credit is due. We’re renowned for three things: our writing, fair play, and love of cake.

If anyone reading this at Flickr HQ indulges a healthy reading and/or writing habit, be sure to stop by and check us out before we’re bought up by Yahoo! for an undisclosed amount.

Sincerely yours,
Carolyn & Colin

They gave us the key.
