Is Life.com the new Flickr

With 3 billion photos on line Flickr has often been described as the new Life Magazine. Now imagine the new Life Magazine as the new Flickr. <http://www.life.com/Life/&gt;

We’ll get to see in early 2009 when the site launches according to  What Little I Know <http://blog.ad-ition.com/2008/09/29/life-magazine-re-invents-itself-as-lifecom-a-new-flickr/&gt;

“What the Life.com launch will do, aside from putting it the ranks of Flickr, is take the historical and brilliant Life magazine coverage of news and events and make it readily available to the reader online, in a manner that is geared towards them,” writes Beverly Crandon for the site. 

Crandon goes on to say that Life executives are collaborating with Getty Images melding Getty’s search technology with the Life archive.
