Can somebody remind me how blogging is supposed to be different than the so-called mainstream media? Um, because he uses WordPress. 😉 Why does someone who does journalistic things have to be part of the mainstream media, and why can’t a blogger be a journalist? I don’t know if he was “fed” this information, I would imagine if they wanted to leak the story a company would do it closer to the real announcement and in a real publication like the NYT or WSJ, not on a blog. Oh, no. This is not good news. It’s a corporate war to own the internet, and that can’t be good. Picture Book I took close to 60 pictures on Sunday. None of them are available here or on the moblog or Flickr yet, since it’s late at night as I write this post and I don’t have the patience to upload them. In fact, we’ve been fairly slack about the whole vis… Give it a month or two… Your cherished Flickr will be ‘decorated’ with mugshots of Britney Spears and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Hmm, personally I think this is great news. Great, knowing that brilliant innovators on the web can still get rich. Hehe. 🙂 They would have gotten rich even without Yahoo. I am worried that Yahoo will do to Flickr the some c**p they did to Geocities, of which I was a member. I wish I could say I thought this was a good thing…. I get the sudden feeling that google will expand Picasa now that this has happened. For the time being though, I do hope flickr doesn’t turn into a floodfest as Roy described. Comments are closed.
