Some of you probably already know that Flickr is forcing us old skool Flickr users to merge our Flickr accounts to a Yahoo account, and we are pissed. Basically Yahoo/Flickr is screwing the people that made them popular in the first place. I was quoted in a BBC article about this very issue. I’ve never been quoted in such a widely read publication before, it’s a little bit exciting. I guess I know have my 15 minutes of fame. BTW, here is my quote:
Why are the Old Skool members being treated like second class citizens on this issue? We are the community that made Yahoo buy you guys.
