Beware the Flickr brain police

Flickr, the supercool photo-sharing site, has started a storm in a user-generated teacup by deleting a picture of a child smoker.

The Yahoo-owned company has a blanket policy about children and cigarettes – the two shouldn’t mix and as such it doesn’t allow pictures of nicotine-addled kids on its site.

Is Zillow.com the new Boo.com?

Disruptive US-based real estate aggregator Zillow continues to confound and amaze with the news that it has raised another $30m, taking its total fundraising to a staggering $87m.

Yet in this day and age $87m is a fortune. Internet businesses just don’t need that kind of money to put themselves on the map. Or do they?
