Thomas Hawk (CEO of Flickr competitor Zooomr) riffed on our prediction that Yahoo Photos would be terminated, with the possible coda of having its users and content ported to Flickr. Most of the reaction from Hawk and elsewhere focuses not on the demise of Yahoo Photos, but rather on the idea of a great unwashed mob of Yahoo Photos' casual snapshooters invading the pristine arty confines of Flickr. As a possible clue, Hawk tells us that his post on the issue is getting a lot of referral traffic from a private Flickr Central forum, where Flickr staff and a few admins talk shop. Know what's going on in there? Say so.
