Many of you have abandoned Flickr for many others did five years ago, when Flickr was undergoing earlier, upsetting changes. Now, as then, I'm maintaining my primary commitment to Flickr — hoping they will fix what most needs fixing and that I will get more comfortable with those things that are not worse than before but simply different. My Flickr stream is more than simply a collection of my photos. It is a record of the deep social ties I have formed there. Importing my pictures here would leave behind all of the comments and all of the person-to-person bonds that my friends and I have formed over the last seven years. I am unwilling to give that up. But for those of you who have completely burned your bridges, I will maintain a pied à terre here and post occasionally. We will miss you on Flickr.
