Technology QotW: Video Killed the Photography Star

Flickr pro users can now upload 90 second videos which has members complaining about everything from slowing Flickr down, lack of community consultation, and diminishing Flickr's inital purpose: photography. What do you think — Do you support video on Flickr?

This is a good question.  I've been browsing around the video and I like some of the stuff I've seen, but I think Flickr would have been better off making a sister site with lots of interaction and cross applications.  Something like the way the 43 Things group of websites works – they're all separate, but they cross-link and work together fairly well.  Having said that, they've done it, and done it fairly well and all that's left to be done is to wait and see how the hardcore Flickr users adapt and change the service offered.
