LOL!!!! omg!

Yahoo! has just bought Flickr. How very, very interesting.

The Flickr blog posting about this is worth reading: if only for the masterly way whoever composed it plays upon the implied Flickr user's aspirations, and fears too, I suppose. I specially liked this line:
Yahoo Photos and Flickr have different kinds of users with different needs, and will remain separate for the foreseeable future. Flickr would also suffer from a sudden deluge of LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg! so we're going to grow it carefully.

The blog post also seems to say that Pro accounts are going to become cheaper, which suits me.
