Fast-forward to about a week or so ago, the lat­est news would have to be Flickr’s Thomas Hawk telling us his rea­son­ing behind his move to Zooomr.

    Hey Sher­win,

    Thanks so much for blog­ging about Zooomr. We are glad to finally have the DDOS attack behind us and Zooomr2 up and run­ning. Let me know if you have any ques­tions about the site after try­ing it out.

    We plan to con­tinue unrolling new fea­tures as quickly as we can and improve the site going for­ward. If there are spe­cific things you’d like to see in Zooomr be sure and let me know.

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    Tom
