Don MacAskill’s AMA Reinforces My Optimism About Flickr

Don MacAskill, Reddit:

But Flickr isn’t Instagram and, under my watch, it won’t ever be. Flickr is all > about a long-lasting, deep, abiding photographer community. It’s not about > showing a photo to quickly gather some likes & comments today, only to never > have that photo be seen again. It’s about engaging in visual storytelling that > lasts forever. > > … > > I’m not interested in competing with Instagram and Snapchat, > so if that’s your definition of social” then my answer is no.

The possibilities around SmugMug’s purchase of Flickr has me so very excited. This Reddit AMA with MacAskill makes me feel even better about it.
