So Hot Right Now

i heart flickr

Flickr never fails to amaze. This week they made good on a promise to provide some goodies to their earlier members. Each member was given a couple of ‘gift’ memberships to hand out, each yearly subscription was extended to two years and ongoing subscriptions fees were halved. I’m impressed, though I’m still hanging out for some Flickr schwag.

My two gifts have already been answered for, with a strict premise that both benefactors actually use their accounts.

The growth of Flickr is incredible. Checking relatively common tags now yields a massive number of photos, blue is currently sitting at 27,329 photos. Yikes, I can remember when it was only a couple of thousand. No wonder Flickr’s makers are now measuring the number of new photos added per second rather than per day.
