Bye-bye Flickr

It’s a little annoying, as a Canadian, to see this sort of thing …

The Flickr team has up and moved this week to Californ-i-a and has been singing Beach Boys songs non-stop since arrival. And you’re moving too!

We’re moving each and every pixel, bit, and byte, all your data, lock, stock, and barrel, from our humble server shack in Canada to our new server palace in the U.S. of A!

This process will begin during the week of June 28 and will result in speediness, stableness, and happiness. For more information, please visit the FAQ about the data center move.

Thank you, Flickreebies, for making Flickr such a wonderful place to share, connect, and befriend. We love you! (In an entirely non-creepy way.)

Flickr, of course, was bought by Yahoo! a while back, a US corporation, and apparently they’re moving everything and everyone to the States.

I live near Vancouver, Canada, right around where Flickr was born and grew up, and it’s a little sad to see it go.
