OMG: flickr is actually still alive
I have to be honest, I haven't been very active on flickr this past year. Infact, l almost didn't renew my PRO account. Why? l guess I was finding flickr pretty stale. The interface hasn't changed much since joined in 2006. There are still a lot of really good photographers using flickr but it was pretty painful browsing the UI to find their work. I'd typically goto my favorite group load a couple pages & give up. The new refresh of the groups 'more pictures' UI was something that was sorely needed. Its tiles load fast and scroll smoothly which makes browsing, even on my tablet much more enjoyable.
It's nice to know there are still some developers left at flickr, maybe next year my decision to renew will be easier.
