[I work here.]

While you have not yet reached your goal of 20K members, we at FlickrHQ have heard of your noble efforts and seek to answer your cries for justice.

Save the date: Wednesday, April 16th, 11:00am at Bob's Donuts in San Francisco @ 1621 Polk Street . I will purchase one (1) free donut for every We Demand Donuts group member who shows up.* (*While supplies last.)

----------------
UPDATE: If you plan on attending, please RSVP on the Upcoming event so I can get a sense of how many people to expect.
----------------

This is not a joke.

Let glazed and jelly-filled freedom ring!

(I sincerely apologize for those members who are not local to the SF Bay Area, but the combination of a greasy donut and a postal envelope is a very sad thing indeed, and would be an affront to Donutkind.)

[Added by jakerome: Check to see if there's a Day of the Donut meet-up in your area, or volunteer to organize one, over here. And if you can't make it to any meet-ups, wherever you are please enjoy a donut and post the photos & videos, flickr.com/photos/mireille/2404970871/ ]

I agree. Having free donuts only in SF doesn't seem fair, the rest of us flickrites deserve our own free donuts!

Performing Ourselves: Flickr as a Technology of Memory, Communication, and Expression

SFLights, he does work at flickr. I even talked to him about video on flickr at a Yahoo brainjam talk about flickr last November.

Though we'll have to see if he can give us dispensation to have a video clip longer than 90 seconds since it will take longer than that for him to buy us all donuts (and perhaps it can be webcast as well to make everyone who can't make it hungry).
