Flickr, the photo sharing website, has been acquired by premium photo hosting company SmugMug. Based on what SmugMug are currently saying I’m hoping that this might actually be a good thing.

Flickr and SmugMug will continue to operate as separate entities indefinitely, although CEO Don MacAskill says he doesn’t yet know what his plans are for Flickr.
