Flickr blog post yesterday celebrated 200,000,000 images published under Creative Commons license. According to the same blog post, this makes Flickr the largest Creative Commons image repository in the world. This is indeed a huge and important milestone and I congratulate Flickr and everyone involved in achieving it. I’ve always said that there are many photo sharing websites that serve different audiences, tastes, and preferences. But Flickr goes beyond that by providing an excellent Creative Commons platform. I hope that this will grow and flourish.
