• How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet

    by  •  • Posterous


    “Flickr is still pretty wonderful. But it’s lovely in the same way a box of old photos you’ve stashed under the bed is. It’s an archive of nostalgia that you love dearly, on the rare occasion you stumble across it. You pull them out, and hold them up to the light, and remember a time when you were younger, and the Web was a more optimistic place, and it really was almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world.

    And then you close the box.

    And you click over to Facebook, to see what’s new.”
