kewlchops: Not quite what I had in mind.
"Not what I had in mind at all." George Oates on how her firing from Flickr played out, which was pretty horrific as it turned out - she was on the other side of the world, presenting on behalf of the firm.

"So to recap, we have scraped some data from a wikipedia page into a Google spreadsheet using the =importHTML formula, published a handful of rows from the table as CSV, consumed the CSV in a Yahoo pipe and created a geocoded KML feed from it, and then displayed it in a Yahoo map." Wow, etc.
