  2. Diary of a Corporate Sellout — The Message — Medium

    Andy Baio on what it means to sell a site to a larger company. When you give up ownership, you’re selling the community.

  3. How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet

    “Build something good, and the buyout offers start rolling in. But while selling out in most other fields of creative endeavor is frowned upon, it’s a given on the Web.” True, but this assumes you think of a start-up as a creative endeavour, not a business. But still.

  4. How You Can Help Save Upcoming.org, Posterous, and More

    Solely for the phrase “companies like Yahoo work to destroy as much human history as possible.” Must suck to work somewhere like that.

  10. Code: Flickr Developer Blog » Flickr Shapefiles Public Dataset 1.0

    I keep seeing cool code stuff whizz by and I’m not making anything with it. May need to ringfence time from other commitments just to *do* something.

  11. Simonw’s geocoders at master - GitHub

    Python “code for accessing various geocoding web services with an ultra simple API”. Sounds good.

  14. Slides: Professional Frontend Engineering | Nate Koechley’s Blog
