Yesterday I walked into Harvest Hills Market to buy some raspberries, and who did I see? Neighbor Markus!
Of course, he’s Neighbor Markus to us. But to the rest of the world, he’s Markus Spiering, head of product at Flickr, the venerable online photo-sharing service that’s owned by Yahoo.
Flickr rolled out a dramatic (and critically acclaimed) redesign this week, and on Tuesday Neighbor Markus was in New York City to do an appearance on Good Morning America — right alongside Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. (Sizzle!)
Yet on Wednesday, there he was: Neighbor Markus, buying some fruit and a loaf of bread at Harvest Hills… just like us!
Seriously though; Flickr’s new redesign was long overdue, but the final result was well worth the wait. If you haven’t seen Neighbor Markus’s handiwork yet, you should take a peek at the new, improved Flickr
And if you happen to see Neighbor Markus strolling in the neighborhood, give the dude a big high-five. He’s earned it.
