Yahoo Scaling Down Flickr

Apparently Yahoo is scaling down Flickr, and now I am very worried about Flickr Commons. The Commons isn’t nearly the busy place it used to be, but there are enough institutional collections on it that it would be a huge loss. “To be clear, Yahoo is *not* shutting down Flickr, but it has decided to scale it down. In other words, Flickr will be alive, but Yahoo has decided to reduce its investment in the online photo sharing service. Flickr will soon be operated with minimal overhead, and resources and funds meant for Flickr might be allocated to some other venture within Yahoo’s umbrella.”
