    Interesting.. I was just about to do the same thing today. I’d be interested to find out what you think.

    My reaction so far is that I’ve completely misunderstood what Flickr was all about.

    Flickr is all about the community that surrounds small pointless pictures.

    The navigation sucks, and it’s a usability mess. But damn I can spend hours just browsing through interesting stuff.

    It cannot, however, be compared to Photostack and the likes. I’ll write some more when I delve deeper!

    Ain’t that the truth. I am using it for the moment mainly to upload my “moblog” pictures.

    What I like about flickr, however, is the community. To see a bit of people’s lives and comment on them.

    Exactly. It’s not where you post your prettiest artsy fartsy pictures. It’s where you discuss selected pictures, whether they’re nice pictures of clouds, screendumps of playlists, or just generic close up pictures of cats. Wearing hats. With a wide angle lens. And for that matter, there doesn’t seem to be any substitute.
