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.” 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.
