Mat Honan on Flickr’s destruction at the hands of Yahoo!:
Flickr is still very valuable. It has a massive database of geotagged, Creative Commons- and Getty-licensed, subject-tagged photos. But sadly, Yahoo’s steady march of incompetence doesn’t bode well for making use of these valuable properties. If the Internet really were a series of tubes, Yahoo would be the leaking sewage pipe, covering everything it comes in contact with in watered-down shit [emphasis mine].
I’d be hard pressed to put it better than that, folks.
