I read this on Scripting News today:
I talked with Matt and Scott Beale about how happy I am that Flickr is still free, and I was very pleased with how generous Yahoo was to let us use it without ads. They looked at me strangely and asked if I had a Pro account, and I said I did, it was a gift from Stewart. Then they told me that’s why I didn’t see any ads. Ahhhh. I guess when I point to something on Flickr y’all see ads? Uh huh. Oh. Kay. Now I’m slightly less pleased than before.
That’s weird – I send one of my free gift Pro Accounts to Dave Winer, but I don’t know if he ever actually got it.
Hey, Flickr I want my gift Pro Account back!
