In an interview on The Verge about his recent Delicious acquisition, Maciej Cegłowski says:
If you could have Flickr back the way it used to be and run competently, everybody would be on there right now. I think it would be wonderful if the old Flickr crew could get the site back and run it the way they wanted to.
Oh my, that would make me so happy.
Flickr is still my favorite image sharing service. I have optimistically clung to it in recent years, although I'm not sure I'll be able to get past the recent Verizon acquisition. Seeing Flickr back in caring, competent hands would be the ideal outcome.
