Helluva good start, Flickr.

Yeah, Yahoo acquired Tumblr (another service with an aversion to the letter “e”.) But If today’s changes to Flickr are any indication, Tumblr may be alright.

I think Flickr still has a ways to go, but today’s redesign is definitely a step in the right direction. A terabyte of storage, an Android app, and a heavily updated UI go a long way towards making Flickr relevant again. Is it enough? I’ve slowed my Flickr use over the past year, but that’s only because I haven’t been shooting as much as I used to. Flickr is still my favorite photo-sharing site, so I’m happy to see Yahoo pouring resources into it. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.
