This was originally posted to Medium, as a response to Doc Searls’ post ‘Dear Adobe, Please buy Flickr’. I’m porting this post to my blog at the very end of 2018, just days before Flickr’s acquirer makes changes to free accounts. I’m in the midst of downloading my archive, and will actually need to deal with this in 2019. Of course, I’m thinking a lot more about web3 solutions and new protocols like IPFS, but there aren’t easy answers.
