@mattedgar Anyone here recall #Flickr 's predecessor, #GNE or #GameNeverEnding ? Money (colored paper) literally grew on trees. It had the whimsy you speak of. Then they added the ability to attach photos to the in-game chat, and decided that was the product, not the game.

@mattedgar how tiresome. All my photos still get uploaded to Flickr, I'm just about eight years or something behind in sorting them out. I should force myself to do 20 minutes 'gardening' a day, or something.
