Thanks to Yahoo!

Saturday, January 19, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Thanks to everyone at Yahoo who helped make the first public demo of FlickrFan a success on Thursday night. The meetup was well-attended. There was only one glitch in the demo, otherwise every feature showed off well. There was a lively discussion. Got some great feature suggestions, met some cool new people and reconnected with some old friends.  Permalink to this paragraph

Yahoo had a video camera there, not sure when they'll publish it, but there will be a link here as soon as it is online. Permalink to this paragraph

Thanks to Chad Dickerson, Salim Ismail, Bradley Horowitz and all the Brickhouse people for helping make this happen.  Permalink to this paragraph
