{ – Flickr of idea on a gaming project led to photo website } – “Fake scrapped the game. She and her programmer husband, Stewart Butterfield, transformed the project into Flickr. In less than two years, the photo-sharing site — now owned by Internet giant Yahoo — has turned into one of the Web’s fastest-growing properties.”

I remember playing around with the Game Neverending…we’re talking early alphas, and talked with Caterina and Stewart and they were some of the nicest people I ever chatted with online. I was kinda sad when Flickr became the project instead of GNE, but it was for the best.

I finally upgraded my Flickr account and hope to have more on that wonderful site in the coming weeks.
