1. Three things can happen to Flickr:

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


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


    1. Both.
  2. 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 (http://closing.photos.yahoo.com/us/photos_closed.php) 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.
