'Freaks and Geeks' and Instagram and Flickr

Flickr feels like it's the left-behind Geeks, and Instagram the seemingly cool Freaks.

And Flickr still only wants one thing from you: photos. They want to sell ads around those photos, sure. And they would like $25 if you want to upload lots of photos, or retrieve some of your much older stuff. But like Millie and the Mathlete lunch table, Flickr will welcome you back from the cool kids’ table. Flickr will let you use its Creative-Commons-licensed photos for your projects. Flickr will let anyone see your recent public photos, not just fellow smartphone owners. And if you want to talk about exactly what type of F-stop and aperture was used on that amazing photo of a baby panda, Flickr, like the Mathletes, is all ears.

Here’s hoping Millie doesn’t do something to ruin this unnecessary analogy, past episode 8.
