"This is the story of Flickr. And how Yahoo bought it and murdered it and screwed itself out of relevance along the way."

"Geofences are special locations that deserve their own geo privacy settings. Simply draw a circle on a map, choose a geo privacy setting for that area, and you’re done. Existing photos in that location are updated with your new setting, and any time you geotag a photo in that area, it gets that setting too."

"Flickr is somewhat unique in that it uses a code repository with no branches; everything is checked into head, and head is pushed to production several times a day. This works well for bug fixes that we want to go out immediately, but presents a problem when we’re working on a new feature that takes several months to complete. How do we solve that problem? With flags and flippers!"

Flickr now more forgiving about deletions... "*NEW* 90 day delay in erasing content after an account is deleted: We’ve now instituted a 90 day delay in deleting the content, including the photos, metadata, comments, and all the bits of an account, after it’s deleted."

"Yahoo’s Flickr may have another PR nightmare on their hands. IT architect and Flickr user Mirco Wilhelm couldn’t log on to his 5-year old account yesterday, and when he asked the Flickr team about this issue they flat out told him they had accidentally flushed his entire account, and the 4,000 photos that were in it, straight down the drain." Urgh.

A summary of the answer to the question "Why did Flickr miss the mobile photo opportunity that Instagram and picplz are pursuing?", by Kellan Elliott-McCrea, former architect at Flickr. Plus "Would Flickr have been more innovative since their acquisition if it had been Google that acquired them?" answered by Flickr founder Stewart Butterfield. "[We] fell into the trap of thinking like an incumbent".

"Why did the web services group at Yahoo fail after acquiring Flickr, Delicious, Upcoming, MyBlogLog and others? These acquisions were supposed to re-vitalize Yahoo. Lots of smart people and a solid acquisition streak. Why did it end up having such little impact?" Good answers at Quora.

"I just finished reading your demoralizing letter regarding recent layoffs at Yahoo over at All Things Digital. Although I’m only a Yahoo user, not an employee, I am a heavy user of your Flickr product — a product that I’ve enjoyed and loved for many years now. As such, I watch how Yahoo is run with keen interest, mostly because I’m worried about how your corporate leadership will affect that site which I love so much." (Sigh) It's so easy from the outside.

"Several times a week I get an emails like, “Can you explain how Flickr does XYZ? I’m hoping there is a nice packaged solution for this.” [but] We generally try do the dumbest thing that will work first. And that’s usually as far as we get."

I hate list articles, but I love visualisation, so this list article is fine by me. And it includes the Guardian Data Store as one of the sources, so that's bonus.
