I know there has been some rustlings about Yahoo’s inclusion of Flickr into its image search. But today something happened that hasn’t in a very long time – I found myself proactively going to Yahoo Image Search to find something, because my default – Google – didn’t have it.
I was telling my son, who shares my love of music, about seeing Mute Math at Bonnaroo last month. It was an amazing show, with the lead singer flinging himself about the stage, the ultimate finale being a spread eagle belly flop into a bank of lights behind the band. I wanted to show Ian what I was talking about.
“Mute Math in Concert“, I asked Google.
Good, but not, well, right.
Then I remembered that Yahoo had integrated Flickr into its results. I was somehow certain that through Flickr, I would see what I wanted to see.
And I was right. It was exactly what I expected to see. And then I could dive into a ton of Flickr streams and really show my son what I saw.
Nice work, Yahoo.
