It’s a real problem. A real real problem. With the rebellion of Flickr users after the change to Yahoo! IDs the move to migrate upcoming.org to its new home at upcoming.yahoo.com and Yahoo! IDs is being a bit more sensitively handled. Still, there will no doubt be a furore and accusations of selling out.
Seriously though, what did people think was going to happen? Yahoo! just buys these things and doesn’t integrate them into its infrastructure and systems? Don’t be daft. Happy then should be happy now.
It does mean I might actually have to get a Yahoo! id after all though.
