The Flickr group We Demand Donuts was the recipient of 10 dozen donuts at a donut shop in San Francisco today, courtesy of Flickr employee Matthew Rothenberg. The event began as a way of making light of a Flickr protest against the new feature that allows pro users to upload video to Flickr.
We Demand Donuts sprang up long before the video feature was added, but the group never had much of a following until last week, according to Jake Rome, who started the group in 2007. Shortly after the option to include video was added and several groups protesting the new feature emerged, the We Demand Donuts movement gathered steam.
We Demand Donuts had events in other places, but Flickr only organized and bought donuts for the San Francisco “protest”. http://blog.wired.com/underwire/2008/04/flickr-quells-v.html to story. http://flickr.com/groups/wedemanddonuts/pool/
