Ah yes, thanks for reminding us of that Peter.  I've spent a fair amount of time reading Flickr's licensing terms, and have been impressed with the range of CC options.  But apparently not impressed enough to remember!  = /

Content on Flickr remains yours. It's tied into Creative Commons licensing so you can be very specific about how your photos are used. Flickr also does video now. Photos can also be marked private.

I do believe that using an outside source like Flickr would conflict with the U's terms.  What do you do if their site goes down?  Also be cautious of who owns the content.  Some sites take ownership of whatever is uploaded.  Have you considered using a local PHP install of Gallery? http://gallery.menalto.com/  I'm sure there are other options.

If anyone has linked to Flickr I would be curious to know how. My understanding is that they require that you either link to them using a Flickr photo or Flickr badge (correct me if I am wrong). I also want to know if there are rules about using a Flickr badge on a U of M site since it is advertisement-like. Also, what exactly does "for personal use" mean with regard to Flickr?

I have many questions about other social media too! This would be a good topic for a presentation.
