flickring out

May 01, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

One of my motivations for using Flickr was that my photos would always be available for people to use, even if for some reason I stopped paying them money and uploading more. Some time between when i started with Flickr and now that ceased to be the case, and Flickr will make available only the most recent 200 photos of non-paying members. That's disappointing because it seriously damages Flickr's utility as a photo library. My 17,000 photos on Flickr have gathered more than 900,000 views all told. I'm not pulling the plug just yet but I am thinking about contingency plans.
