Yahoo! acquires Ludicorp and Flickr

It’s official: Yahoo! has purchased Ludicorp and Flickr. “Pro account holders will get super mega bonuses, to be announced soon.”

News.com reports all Ludicorp employees will relocate to Sunnyvale later this year.

Stewart says: “we prefer to think of it as Flickr taking over Yahoo rather than the other way around.”

As previously reported I am skeptical of the ability to maintain a passionate user base within a big corporation such as Yahoo!. Congratulations to everyone involved and I hope you can continue to build great things and passionate communities.
