The Vancouver Tech community’s calls have gone unanswered and Flickr founding Caterina Fake has announced plans to join a fledgling new New York startup called Hunch. Flickr is one of the web’s most popular photo-sharing sites, and was acquired by Yahoo! in 2005 for a reported $35 million. Since then, Flickr has been one of Yahoo’s most successful properties, but Fake alond with her husband Stewart Butterfield left the company in June as part of a mass exodus of senior management.
“What is Hunch? Well, as you might assume, it is a consumer internet application, it will have a lot of user participation, and it is more than a little fun. Beyond that, we’re still making it up.”
I had a hunch should wouldn’t be coming back to Vancouver.
