Yahoo actually does acquire Flickr

Holy smokes, SOMEBODY out there is bad at keeping secrets!! Yes! We can finally confirm that Yahoo has made a definitive agreement to acquire Flickr and us, Ludicorp. Smack the tattlers and pop the champagne corks! Woohoo! What does this mean? It means that we’ll no longer have to draw straws to see who gets paid, schedule conjugal visits between trips to the colo….wait! That’s not what you want to know. This is what you want to know [more/source]

So many buyouts. To think that I have been actively utilizing Flickr services lately for photohosting.

TRIVIA: the co-founder of Ludicorp, the company who made Flickr, is half-Filipino.
