Having arrived at ipernity as a potential refugee, I am greatly disturbed at the prospect of having to embark on another journey. I am sad for the employees of ipernity, for the small band of loyal contacts and for myself.

We need sites where photographs can be shared with acccompanying text and tags etc. rather than just dropped on to the internet as some sort of decoration without explanation. It is baffling that such sites are few and far between.

There is a little hope as many of the responses to the news indicate that people are prepared to pay more. I have a lingering hope that ipernity will survive.
