Flickr - Photo Sharing

Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing is super cool! They implemented a limited version of a feature we noodled on at my startup, StoryCatcher, in 1999. Flickr's cool feature where you can annotate "who is in a photo" was a key piece of the product my startup tried to build. StoryCatcher planned to go beyond what Flickr has implemented by linking "who is in a photo" to other personal information so you could create dynamic photo books or "stories".

I love that companies are starting to do interesting things with photos, as opposed to being focused solely on cheap online storage. I tip my hat to Flickr. Thanks for getting to what we did not finish...
