Flickr Stats

Was trying to add a flickr picture to a post today and found out that flickr was down. Headed over to the flickr blog where they give these latest stats:

Miscellaneous stats to keep you entertained while we wait:

* Our networking gear moves 12,000 photos a second — at peak, that’s 2,654,208,000 bits each second (8:20 PM)
* We set an all-time upload record yesterday: 2,070,075 photos in 24 hours! (8:40 PM)
* The Flickrverse has 8.5 million registered members (9:00 PM)

Now that’s a lot of user created content!
