I know about the ruby on rails.org screencast. Want to talk to
people who do more indepth stuff.
Best bet on getting started is to check out flickr.rb (http:// redgreenblu.com/flickr/). By looking through the rdoc you should be
able to do most things. The code for it is pretty easy to understand
and modify to do what you want if it doesn’t already do it.
One tip: The API key is (unfortunately) hard-coded in flickr.rb, so
you’ll need to paste your own one in there.
If you have any questions about modifications to the code you are
having trouble, I subscribe to this mailing list, so will probably
answer fairly quickly, as I am sure others will.
