At first glance, you could mistake Flickr for yet another online storage space for personal photo collections, but don't be fooled -- it's plenty more. Social network. Blogging tool. Topical groupware. Of course, the kicker may be the effort, enthusiasm, humor, and smarts the Ludicorp gang brings to developing Flickr as a platform for interaction.
