Yesterday I learned from Karen G that Flickr is now hosting video. Of course they’ve provided a nice “embed” feature just like you’d expect, so you can grab an HTML snippet to paste the video into your blog or webpage. That’s dandy. But what really chaps my ass is: Why can’t they provide the same HTML snippet embedding convenience for images, which are Flickr’s bread and butter? I mean, I publish my pix under a Creative Commons license because I want people to use them. (And, strangely enough, they do.) Why not make it as easy to embed images as it is to embed video?
