After two (three?) years without a Flickr Pro account, I went ahead and got one.
Feel free to go look at them pretty pictures, all 1205 of them. I thought I only had something like 400 or so.
At the time, the Web was rapidly becoming more social, and Flickr was at the forefront of that movement. It was all about groups and comments and identifying people as contacts, friends or family. To Yahoo, it was just a fucking database.
