In the now-infamous memo, Yahoo’s Brad Garlinghouse complains about duplication of effort: “We lack decisiveness…. We end up with competing (or redundant) initiatives and synergistic opportunities living in the different silos of our company[, like] Flickr vs. Photos.”

Flickr people are not Yahoo Photos people and don’t want to be. Flickr people wouldn’t want to share an elevator with Yahoo Photos people, despite the fact that the code for Flickr is an embarrassment and that of Yahoo Photos is modern and clever in the extreme.

Flickr vs. Y<bang>P is a case of movies vs. cinema or homosexual agenda vs. queer politics.
