Flickr News Flash!

So I was just browsing the Flickr Blog…

Yahoo is buying Flickr!

I never heard any of these rumors that supposedly foretold the purchase, but it’ll be interesting to see what happens next.

Now I’m torn between upgrading to a paid account now for the “super mega bonuses” and waiting for the cheaper version to come… I’m also assuming functionality remains the same. Crossing my fingers.

  1. Yeah, I’m sitting here at PC Forum and Esther Dyson (investor in Flickr and host of PC Forum) and Jerry Yang (Chief Yahoo) just casually announced it during their conversation on stage, and there was a big uproar from the audience.

  2. Yeah, I’m sitting here at PC Forum and Esther Dyson (investor in Flickr and host of PC Forum) and Jerry Yang (Chief Yahoo) just casually announced it during their conversation on stage, and there was a semi-ovation from the audience. Marc Canter, perhaps Flickr’s biggest fan, was the first to let out a howl of approval.

  3. Awesome, I’m jealous you got to be there 🙂
