In some quarters there has been uproar.
I was thinking about this. It doesn’t make sense in the grander scheme of video sharing (YouTube, Viddler etc.). I guess that was my first reaction, anyway. However, reading the FAQ and trying to understand what Flickr are going for here in the way that they have implemented it, I’m prepared to give it a try. The idea is described as “long photos” limited to 90 seconds, and it kind of works. I’ll have to watch and see how the site changes.
