Flickr and Reflections on a Redesign

Yahoo rolled out a radical new design for Flickr this week. However, like almost every redesign of a popular product, there are howls of outrage about the changes. Since so many museums use Flickr for collections access, I’m really interested in this process and what it means for us. But the rollout of the new design also serves as a cautionary tale about community adoption of a property and what happens when the titular owner decides to make changes.
