Microsoft Bids On Yahoo

Ah crap. Microsoft makes a bid to buy Yahoo. Can they spin off Flickr and before completing the deal? Please? [Update] And, unsurprisingly, I am not alone.

Three things can happen to Flickr:

1. Microsoft will make some changes that will render Flickr all crappy and boring;


2. People will run away, scared of Big Brother;


3. Both.

I think most of the people who ran off did so when it was bought by Yahoo.

Doesn’t mean that MS won’t wreck it though. But since they closed Yahoo Photos ( in favour of Flickr, it’s pretty central to the overall Yahoo set of products.

This whole thing seems like a race to the bottom for both companies. It’s going to be ugly, I suspect.
