Venture-backed photo-sharing site Zooomr is betting the farm on Japan? Japan already has a lot of photo sharing sites like Photozou or Livedoor Pics or Flickr itself, or one of dozens of other clones. I’m not sure what the Zooomr guys think that they have that will make their service popular in Japan vs. the home-grown Japanese sites or the massively popular sites like Flickr which can add a Japanese interface in days.
But at the same time — I’m working my ass off like you can’t believe in Japan.
If Japan doesn’t go anywhere, you can kiss Zooomr good-bye. Americans don’t care about photos like the Japanese — by embracing Japan’s economy, we can save Zooomr financially.
