Yesterday, the new issue of Gigapan Magazine (volume 1 issue 3) was published, titled “Culture Shop”. Guess what?
One of my Gigapan panoramas is on its cover!

Kilgore661 is a Gigapanographer since March 2008, he is my cyber-friend too :)
Kilgore has created some wonderful stuff about GigaPan, which I really like. You can find the link to all of them on Kilgore's Website, but to make it easier, I mention some of them here:
Show random gigapans
Show gigapans near a given gigapan
View a graph of the scores or hits for an arbitrary set of gigapans
View a graph of the estimated number of members at gigapan.org
Who has uploaded the most gigapans?
Who has uploaded the most pixels?
Who uploads the largest gigapans on average?

Today, when I was exploring some GigaPans, I found something really nice :)
"Snapshots & Comments Feed" is now available. You can find the link for the feed of each GigaPan panorama on it's page. I don't know if it's permanent or just a test, but something is obvious: It's a good sign. I hope the Gigapan team add the feed for GigaPan panoramas soon.
I guess I'm the first person spreading the news. I found no post about this on GigaPan forum and GigaPan blog, please let me know if you have any update.

This video is uploaded by CMU. In the video, professor Illah Nourbakhsh talks about Ethics in Robotics. In part of his 41-minute-long lecture, Illah talks about the reason behind the GigaPan technology. Here is what he says (29:50 – 30:30):
“We got here by asking the question: how can we foster better humanization between children and different parts of the world, how can we cause cross-cultural understanding? …”
And then, Illah continues:
“… and the answer in our minds was about the power of the image, what if you allow people to do imaging in a way that is so detailed that you fall into the image, explore it, find details that enable you to have a conversation with people around the world, because you essentially exploring a microcosm of them. It says everybody on earth becomes a Google Earth producer; they are making something that has extreme resolution and sharing with others. So, then we made the technology.”

The new version of GigaPan Stitcher is now available for download (0.4.3865 for Macintosh, 0.4.3864 for Windows) which also includes GigaPan Uploader. The Windows version is 16.74 MB and the Macintosh version is 66.91 MB!
P.S. I hope there will be some kind of newsletter for announcing the new versions of GigaPan Stitcher and GigaPan Uploader on gigapan.org. Even GigaPan blog has not written anything about the new versions, yet.
UPDATE on Feb. 24: So… according to what my friend, David Engle, mentioned in a comment of this post, there is a sort of newsletter called GigaPan Tech Bulletin which I guess is automatically sent to those who has bought a GigaPan Imager (New name: GigaPan EPIC). I hope there is a way to subscribe to Gigapan Tech Bulletin for public.
