Happy 7th Anniversary Flickr!

To commemorate Flickr’s 7th Anniversary, here’s a drawing of Flickr-tan, an anime girl persona of all things Flickr! – including gratuitous amount of surprisingly functionless blue and magenta spheres and a vomiting panda doll!

Time for a little history lesson!  Flickr was originally a prototype image hosting site created by Ludicorp located in Vancouver BC, right at the time when I was living there in fact! Surprisingly, Flickr was actually originally developed as a tool to make an MMO called Game Neverending. Game Neverending didn’t survive, but Flickr did, and on February 10th, 2004 at 5:15, Flickr took it’s first flight! Flickr was later acquired by Yahoo, but surprisingly, didn’t spontaneously implode instantly afterward.

Despite it’s inherent bias for photos over illustrations and screen shots, Flickr has easily become my favorite image hosting site to use, as they have an abnormally friendly community of surprisingly sane  humans despite the site’s enormous population which according to one law of physics or another, normally is suppose to cancel that particular part out. If you haven’t tried Flickr before, I highly recommend it, please  visit me while you are there and let me know what you’re up! I always love seeing another friendly face on Flickr!
