2 Billion Pictures …

… now on Flickr, posted Tuesday. “It was taken in front of Market City in Chinatown Haymarket in Sydney.” (All Rights Reserved, tip)

In the last six months, the number of photos on Flickr has quadrupled:

2 000 000 000 – 13 Nov 2007
1 000 000 000 – Private
500 000 000 – 15 May 2007
100 000 000 – 15 Feb 2006
10 000 000 – 19 Apr 2005
1 000 000 – 22 Oct 2004

These other milestone images are more mundane shots, in case anyone is thinking “human intervention” given the quality of the 2 billionth image. (tip)

Flickr: launched in 2004; acquired by Yahoo! in March 2005 (was it really that long ago?).
