La pagina a la que se refieren es un post en TechCrunch. Basta con mirar los comentarios para entretenerse un rato. Hay desde el comentario que no tiene nada que ver:

I totally disagree with anyone who says this site is superior to Flickr. It’s just a 1on1 copy of flickr at that! Flickr is a lot more userfriendly than zooomr, even tho flickr isn’t even that userfriendly…
But hey, if you guys wanna hype everything that comes along, don’t let me stop you.
Los que estan esperando a que google haga lo mismo:

how long until google takes this, and makes it free?
im not using some shitty service that give me a whopping 50mb of picture uploads.
oh yeah, im not paying for it either.
Llegando a los comentarios que me llamaron la atencion, y que hablan de la localizacion y por que aplicaciones web 2.0 no son tan populares fuera de los US:

this is great for the millions of people who are screaming in the street that flickr is inadequate.
80% of internet users do not know what a blog is. most users of google maps do not know the maps can be moved with a mouse.
there is no market for zoomr, even if it is better.

>there is no market for zoomr, even if it is better.
grumpY, I’m afraid you’re incorrect about this. The simple reason behind all of this is that Zooomr is localized.
The reason why most of these people don’t know about Web2.0 and associated sites is that most of this technology is coming from English speaking countries and most of it is worded in a highly technical way (RSS, WebBlog, et cetera).
I’m trying to break-through this. I’m trying to create a place where the entire world can join in.
A better question might be why I understand this and have executed on it, where others have not.

Spreading the gospel of Web2.0 to non-english speakers is nothing to proud about. Web2.0 zealots act like they are evangelizing something new and precious that needs their hype. The sad truth is that all you’re doing is getting way to excited about a natural progression that arrived way before your little buzzword gave you a flag to rally around. The worst part is that rather than celebrating principles of feature rich interactivity, people like you want to be praised for dumbed things down for the masses. Apple will tell you, this makes perfect business sense. You would transform the web into a sea of huge fonts and endless whitespace. For what? Greed. True geeks spit on Web2.0 because they recognize it for what it is; one giant pastel glossy step towards our worst romper-room web nightmares.
Localization a geotagging won’t save zoomr from obscurity. You’re too late.

After reading these comments as well as a couple of private emails, I agree that zooomr and other sites hoping to compete with flickr need a mechanism for importing flickr photos.
However, I will say that flickr is not nearly as popular in the rest of the world as it is in the U.S., and zooomr’s multi-language support is perfectly tailored to attack this marked.
Como se lee, es una discusion bastante activa. Pero el punto es cierto: muchas aplicaciones web 2.0 nomas no la arman fuera de los Estados Unidos. Digo, pa’ empezar muchos aun no saben que flickr (o sus competidores son la solucion a muchos problemas para compartir fotos). Por ahi lei un articulo en que se dice que sitios para compartir fotos son una mala solucion para mantenerlas archivadas. Muy cierto… nada mejor que mantener las imagenes bajo el control de uno mismo. Pero siempre se pueden implementar funciones para bajar todas las fotos de un solo jalon, tal y como se planea implementar en zoomr, y que es algo que en ocasion he deseaso que implementen en flickr.
Pero pues, a ver que tal le va al muchacho. Nomas lei que tenia 17 y me senti viejo…
