Flickr Founders Jump Ship

Filed as News on June 18, 2008 3:47 am

This has got to hurt. Yahoo have lost Flickr founders Caterina Fake, who left last Friday, and Steward Butterfield, who’ll be leaving on July 12, according to a report on TechCrunch. When reading this, I quickly surfed to Valleywag with hopes of some juicy rumors or just plain fun nastiness, but alas, they make a poor pun on the fact that it took the husband/wife Flickr founder team less time to give birth to a baby, than to get the video features rolling.

Nothing on the Flickr blog either, but I did find this photo, at least that’s something.
