Using Flickr for photo management appears to be a great value proposition. Store all your photos, and in turn they offer a full terabyte (that’s 1000 gigabytes!) of drive space. For all the different options for storing and managing photos online, Flickr can’t be beat. Right? As good as that is, Flickr also has to be the most annoying and convoluted systems to use for managing and sharing photos. Today, I thought I’d look at Flickr‘s worst offences.

Tumblr From The Inside

I thought I’d highlight Marco Arment’s incredibly candid post regarding the Tumblr acquisition by Yahoo!. If you haven’t yet seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. You’ll get a good idea of what it was like to start a company that would go on to sell for more than a Billion dollars.  At the end of the blog, he appears most candid:

I won’t make yacht-and-helicopter money from the acquisition, and I won’t be switching to dedicated day and night iPhones. But as long as I manage investments properly and don’t spend recklessly, Tumblr has given my family a strong safety net and given me the freedom to work on whatever I want. And that’s exactly what I plan to do.

Amazing.

There are no more results.
