Flickr acquired by Yahoo
Flickr, the online photo-sharing site, was just acquired by Yahoo. I love it when a good idea reaps its rewards. Flickr was a mom and pop operation, founded by a Candian husband and wife team on a shoestring. What's unique about Flickr is that it allows photo-posters to tag their photos with subject matter keywords so other users can easily find photos by subject. Users can comment on photos, creating a photo-based dialog. You can make your photos visible to the public or not. And you can use Flickr to post photos on your blog.
