Flickr Burning As Head Of Service Walks Away →

March 15, 2011 |

Rothenberg is out as head of product for Flickr. He [tweeted](!/mroth/status/47413775799812096) the news himself earlier today. He had been on the team for five years, dating back to when original co-founders Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake were still running the ship. They left long ago, but Rothenberg stuck around. And for the past two years, he’s been the guy in charge.

This comes right on the heels of the decision of moving Delicious on to the Sunset.

I swear, just yesterday I was this close to signing up for a Flickr Pro account. Now I guess I’ll give it some more thought and see how it plays out. Yahoo’s track record of handling its purchases is not very reassuring, to say the least.
