yahoo! buys flickr

The propeller-heads in the audience will already know that Yahoo! has bought Flickr. I recently bought a pro-level account on Flickr and started funneling all my pictures through there, so I hope that the acquisition really does work out the way the Flickr people are saying it will. I really like the services they offer, and I’d hate to see the site start to suck.

If you haven’t already found them, here are my photos. If you’re a Flickrist, drop a line and I’ll add you as a contact – especially if you’re a friend or a family member that got overlooked during the recent sending of Flickr invites that we did. Some of the stuff that gets uploaded to Flickr is tagged as ‘friends and family only’ – it’s pretty much like the stuff that’s public, only less focused.
