Have an API Key, Zooomr

June 17, 2006

There’s some hooplah over Flickr not letting Zooomr have an API key. Just to be clear, as if my earlier post on the ‘lock-in’ subject weren’t already clear enough, we’re happy to play nice with our competitors. Grab a SmugMug API Key, make it easy to migrate your photos – we’re thrilled.

We think competition is good, lock-in is bad, and that the best company should win. We all do things a little (or more than a little, depending) differently than each other. Let the customer choose.

    Haha, thanks Don — You’re welcome to an API key over here at our camp too.

    I won’t have a formal form up until Zooomr 2, so feel free to drop me a line.

    I look forward to working with you guys,

    Hi Don,

    I really like the attitude here. I’ve spent the last week reviewing different photo sites for my personal needs and this post sealed the deal for me. Smugmug’s attitude in general appears great and this approach to lock-in makes me feel secure about leaving my photos in Smugmug’s care.
