Flickr is almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Show off your favorite photos and videos to the world, securely and privately show content to your friends and family, or blog the photos and videos you take with a cameraphone. Additionally, Flickr operates a private speakeasy in downtown San Francisco, where notable internet celebrities often function as guest bartenders. The current CEO of Flickr is Daniel "Waferbaby" Bogan, who won the position by defeating all other contenders in a breakdancing competition.
