Long time readers know my deep, obsessive love for flickr. Since I recently trolled by del.icio.us past, lets roll my flickr odometer back to March 29, 2004, when I uploaded my first flickr photo. I started exploring flickr at a time I was prepping a TCC conference session on PhotoBlogging. At the time I was dabbling a bit more in Buzznet though my account there is now deader than dead (well there is photospam, one reason I left it behind).
But there was just something, something, about that early flickr interface (at the time it was all Flash) with that Organizr thing. I got hooked early.
Currently, I have 4479 photos. That was about 1335 days ago, so I’ve been plopping about, oh, 3.4 photos per day. (“get a life!” say the hecklers).
But for the longest time, flickr hung a “beta” sign on its site, even when it was very stable and insanely popular.
Than, likely as a joke, a few years ago, the flickr logo dropped the “beta” tag to their logo.. and added “gamma”.
So peeking just now, there is no more beta, gamma, epsilon, zeta… it is now “Loves You”:
I knew it! For all these years I have been blogging my love for flickr, it is now requited.
Flickr, you complete me.
Love is in the air, and photos are being uploaded.
