Smugmug buys Flickr!
A great number of us at Ipernity were refugees from Flickr on its takeover as CEO by Marissa Mayer, who turned it into a nightmare of a site. At the time I felt she was a squib whose trajectory was a subject to the same rules of gravity as any other squib, and so it has transpired, with her departure from Yahoo, on its takeover by Verizon.
Subsequently Verizon has sold Flickr to Smugmug.

Nor am I, although I am interested in seeing how the Smugmug site works. As a long-term family-owned business it seems to have generally good reviews and a stable platform...time will tell what they do with the shambles which Flickr was turned into.
