Apparently Flickr is set for a complete makeover which is due to drop on February 28th. Cool... That "Web 2.0" look was a little dated at this point, especially in light of recent upstarts like 500px and Pinterest, which ooze AJAX.

I'm very interested in 500px. Anybody using it? Thoughts?

Yeah, that site really caught my eye too. Easily outclasses the competition as far as looks and modernity go (the aforementioned AJAX yumminess and layout). Haven't played with it yet though... Seems nice to showcase your real winners, but less of a "storage medium" like SmugMug, Flickr, etc. to dump photos. Looks an awful lot like Pixable and Pinterest and in many ways has the same "limitations." That is, it's not as "researchable" as Flickr when looking for lens samples for instance.

I prefer to host my own images - on my own server though... Granted, a luxury not everyone has.

I think these new sites and designs play more to the social media and tablet/mobile direction the Internet is taking these days.
