    @rogre Previously you wrote (or maybe quoted) something like 'I'd give up my right [arm|finger|pinky] for Flickr". Does that ring any bells?

  2. @coldbrain From my pre-Twitter-as-conversation-tool days, I think, I replied to this post about finger-tip sacrifices: blog.mrmeyer.com/?p=6870#commen…

    @coldbrain Oh, and at the time it was Google Reader and Delicious. Now I'm not so sure.

  3. @rogre That's it! Thanks. I was thinking how little I use Flickr & how Instagram, despite no archival tools, has taken over that use for me.

    @rogre So, for me, despite my intermittent and vacuous use of them all: Twitter, *Pinboard*, Instagram and, to a lesser extent, Tumblr.

    @rogre Although I'd prefer to remain in possession of all my fingertips, even if pushed.

  4. @coldbrain What about pushing from Instagram to Flickr (a built-in feature). That's what I've been doing.

    @coldbrain Yup, Pinboard over Delicious for me too. (At this point I bookmark to D, b/c P pulls them over well, leaving a backup behind.)

  6. @rogre (1/2) Understood. I see Flickr as an archive & just not sure about it as a long-term concern. iPhoto archives my photos well enough.

    @rogre (2/2) Maybe it's the network effect: I don't know enough people IRL that use Flickr, so I've never fully immersed myself.

    @Matt_Arguello @rogre Hey, Matt. I think it depends whether you see Flickr as 'archive' or 'resource' (probably bad terms). I'm conflicted.

    @Matt_Arguello @rogre I'm a heavy user of ifttt to (privately) bookmark to Pb and to save relevant stuff to Db. Lovely, quiet, effective.

  9. @coldbrain Delicious & Flickr were the first online social networks I actively participated in. I have an active set of Flickr contacts…
