Why I don’t want Zooomr.com to relaunch

NICK DOUGLAS — The upcoming third edition of photo sharing site Zooomr looks cool (at least in the demo video); it’s advanced enough to escape the usual criticism that the site is just a Flickr ripoff. But I’d rather keep watching the live uncensored feed from founder Kris Tate’s home office. Maybe it’s unprofessional to slap a rough-looking stream of the 20-year-old on the site’s front page. But for all Flickr’s quirky office parties and gimmicks, I couldn’t imagine the Yahoo-owned site getting this personal with their users. At the moment, Tate’s explaining how he’s speeding up the site for its many non-U.S. users by adding servers in Hong Kong and other places. It’s pretty cool to hear how it all works.
