Acrimonious CEO firing. Auction-block rumors. And the general feeling that Yahoo (didn’t Yahoo get formed by like some unholy union of Prodigy and Compuserve or something?) has somewhere between little and no interest in keeping Flickr alive makes me wonder if it’s time to open an over/under on how quickly Yahoo’s owners shutter Flickr. What do you think? 8 months? 6? The end of this year? Talk to me.
500px and openphoto are two alternatives that seem to embrace the simplicity and community of what Flickr was. May have to check them out.
