9/14/08 / Flickr

8:54 PM Goodbye Flickr.  I just deleted my account.  And to think that before this weekend I was thinking of upgrading to a pro account.

What happened?  This weekend there was a conference in town.  I learned that the terms of use of sites such as Flickr give them rights over my photos that I probably wouldn’t like.  While I didn’t learn specific details, I found out that Facebook can use any photo posted any user for any purpose.  I’m glad I got off that site a while ago.

The same goes for contests and competitions, but at least there’s something to win there, and they tell you pretty much up front that they’ll use the winning photos for promotional purposes.

I had a great time at the conference, learned a lot, and met some great people.  I’ll say more about it over the next couple of days.
