Flickr just enabled video on their site…
At least the early adopters seem to use this new power to show off cinematic skills in the <90 second range.
But it makes flickr a mishmash site–not a photo place. We’re gonna have responses to photographs in video form posted in comments, groups devoted to videos of people kids, and quick twitter-like uses of the ‘movie’ setting on cheap digital cameras no one seems to understand. I can’t wait for those sideways videos where the person behind the camera tries to take a video in ‘portrait mode’—but it won’t be all that bad. I’m going to try to just ignore it.
ya know, like I do with things I don’t like.
