I don't like the way Yahoo / flickr treats its customers.
The new system means that we are no longer paying customers / guests.
With no control how our photos are presented we are merely providing a backdrop for flickr's advertising.
All the stuff we've created is used in a different way than it was intended .
We are the merchandise now.
This some sort of image theft that is worse than someone printing my photos on tee-shirts and selling them.
Therefore I will no longer upload any new photos to my flickr.
I have moved to http://www.ipernity.com/home/polapix - a photo sharing site that feeld a lot like pre-Yahoo flickr.
They even have a script to do the house moving for you.

Most of my public photos are released under the CC license. You may pass them on and use them for you own projects as long as those are also CC licensed and you name me as the source. My friends and family stuff is not intended for general publication - Please let me kow if you would like to use one of those.
I build x-snch pc flash adapters for the Polaroid SX-70 www.sx2pc.com/
SX-70 parts exchange
If you send me your broken SX-70 camera I'll take it apart and give the parts to people who need them.
I get way more inquiries than cameras though.

"Greatest SX-70 website.
A true hero to 'roid fans everywhere."

Tod Brilliant says:
"There is NARY A SOUL who has done more to inspire me to cherish my Polaroid cameras. Georg is the primary reason I shoot with the beautiful monsters and to him I will be indebted as long as a creative spark exists within my cold, dark heart."
