This news just fills me with smiles; the Library of Congress in collaboration with Flickr has posted thousands of copyright-free photos and asked Flickr users for their input. If you've ever hesitated getting a Flickr account, now is the time.
Flickr hopes that the LOC will be the first of many institutions and in anticipation, has created the Commons to house these images in need of metadata.
If you need me in the next few hours... I'll be browsing and tagging what I can.
I'm a West Coast grrl through and through; I like the rain and the smell of the ocean. I'm creative and curious which means I follow tangents and check out whatever is new and shiny. I'm a mom and a blogger but not a mommy-blogger. I'm married and closer to "middle-aged" than I'd care to admit.
