Happy 7th Anniversary Flickr!

On February 10th, 2004 at 5:15, Flickr took it's first flight ! Happy 7th Anniversary Flickr!


Before Yahoo acquired it, Flickr was originally founded by Ludicorp in my old home town of Vancouver, BC! Legend has it that Flickr was started off as a tool created for an MMO project called Game Neverending. Game Neverending would never see the light of day, but from that Flickr was born and has since grown into the huggable image sharing service we all use and love today!


One of the the most popular features to showcase Flickr's developer's wicked sense of humor is the "Rainbow Vomiting Panda", a take on a popular internet meme but with significantly more practical use. To this day, the official eternally spewing panda can be found here!


I hope you enjoy my anime illustration of what would happen if Flickr had an anime girl mascot! Thank you Flickr and Happy 7th Anniversary! May you many more wonderful years to come!
