    Stephen Duke, please honestly note that I did not interrupt, only asked 4 questions during question period, so fly your kite, liar. I enjoyed Stewart's life story, and thank you Stewart.

    Good talk and insights from Stewart. The room was a bit small for the crowd size, but we mostly managed.

    Very worthwhile. Frank and honest storytelling by Stewart on his Flickr journey and beyond. Bottom line: "its not about the money." Totally agree.

    Interesting reflections, however difficult to hear. Awkward interruption Lady was there - entertaining: two thumbs up

    Hi, title is a little misleading. I will be there in a heartbeat if Stewart will talk about best practices with Flickr. Is he taking about Tiny Speck (what is that?) instead? Thanks

      Believe Tiny speck is his current company, it's a social gaming startup.
