Jerry Yang On Buying Flickr
Notes from one of the first PC Forum sessions, while hanging out in irc://irc.freenode.net/#pcforum just after Jerry said something about how most bloggers are bad bloggers and new competition from real writers will crush us...
Esther hinted about it... Jerry said, "I know you were involved in a company we just bought, we just announced we acquired Flickr"
Marc Canter yelled out loud something for the first time in two years that wasn't "FOAF" and we all applauded Caterina while Stewart was in IRC.
Jerry continued: "I am a little embarassed.." and Esther took Jerry's picture. "We had to have these people with us... I hope stewart and caterina become our vanguards as we venture forward..."
James mentioned in IRC that drinks were on Stewart tonight.
"...Part of it is because as users we were admirers of the services and communities, then got to know the people, to help us build the next generation, we learned they liked us, and we will boldly venture into a whole new world... Hopefully one of these things where we will understand the communitity, help it grow, help Caterina and Stewart grow it."
There will be much much more:
