Flickr Giving Free Three Month Pro Trial
Kaylie Moise, macgasm.net

Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo, just made Flickr free for three months. Normally a paid subscription is available for $25 a year, the photo-sharing site is now making its unlimited Pro service free for a limited time. People who already subscribe…

Three moths of Flickr Pro free.

I’ve used this space to decry Yahoo’s purchase and subsequent ignoring the Ur photosharing platform. But it would appear that CEO Marissa Mayer wants to see Flickr thrive.

I’ve this a read. I’ve reupped my Pro subscription after a year-long hiatus because I think Flickr just works better. Glad to see Yahoo believes the same.

Have just spent the better part of an afternoon listing a bunch of books on half.com and eBay.  It beats trudging down to a community well to get a bucket of water, but I have to believe that 

I think there could be some sense in forcing yourself to have an EOL plan for everything that you buy.  What you’ll do with it at what point in the future.  If you had to spend time filing a flight plan on every possession, you might think twice on whether you really needed that thing, whatever it is.

Food’s fate is pretty well decided when you buy it.  You buy it, you eat it.  But the novels, plastic cups, steak knives, half life-sized ride-on ponies, DVD box sets, all of it enters into our lives with no real intention if leaving.

Maybe my post-Christmas thing will be to stop for half a second before I buy something and ask “what will I do with this when it’s time to get rid of it?”

I have been quite good all year, with the exception of this one time where I was late in turning in a doughnuts receipt.  I would love to receive any of the following.  I’ve attached links if that helps.

And so these people gathered and smoked cigarettes and talked and Enoch Robinson, the boy from the farm near Winesburg, was there. He stayed in a corner and for the most part said nothing. How his big blue childlike eyes stared about! On the walls were pictures he had made, crude things, half finished. His friends talked of these. Leaning back in their chairs, they talked and talked with their heads rocking from side to side. Words were said about line and values and composition, lots of words, such as are always being said.
