    Precisely
    I use it to share pictures of my daughters (with private settings of course) and pictures of my cameras (public)

    That is a good point. You can keep flikr private if you want. I can get lost in flikr doing searches on tags and sets and groups. I have found a few very talented people who's flikr pages I have saved and check into to see what they are doing now and then. Never posted an image myself though.

    Flickr is great. Lots of talented film photogs there if you look around. Very creative work available among the piles of doodoo.

    Flickr is to photography as YouTube is to video as MySpace is to social networking. It's the new way of the future in terms of identity management. Not everyone 'gets' it as it is very generational.

    It's the biggest stock photo agency in the world....

    Just kidding. But it's true in a way, there is a lot of photos there that you can use according to various licenses. I have been occasionally using them for work, when we needed a quick snap of something to illustrate a web page.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    the trick to flickr is finding groups and individuals who post quality content. there are a number of film/traditional folks on there, including alternative process.

    The trick is in the traveling

    Think of Flickr like a room full of 1000 people with cameras. There's no official directory of the "best" photographers, so you just start with the people "near" you (randomly). If you like any of their photos, then ask them who they like, and continue on that way. If you don't see anything in someone's photos, just move on.

    I rarely browse Flickr using a web browser, but instead subscribe to particular "feeds" of photos from individuals or groups, using an RSS newsreader (in my case, NetNewsWire on the Mac). That way I keep up with the current photos from the people whose work I enjoy the most.

    Personally, I find Flickr to have an incredible depth of quality, often far better than edited pro/fine-art sites. There are really some amazing photogs out there, sometimes folks who are not at all professional.

    Here are links to several photographers (and one group) that I especially enjoy:

    Hope this helps.

    John has the key point in my mind. Start finding photos that you find interesting. Then add the owner as a contact. See what he likes and if you like some of them, add them too. Slowly, your web of contacts grows. And every time you log in (or monitor with an RSS reader), you get updated on your contacts' new photos. Can be quite fun.
