Get In The Pool!

Hello everyone,

Well it’s deadline week here at my business, so I probably will not be publishing much, however, I wanted to share with you a link that you may or may not be aware of! The LOC (Library of Congress) has a great Flickr stream with absolutely tons of great historical photos. Here’s an example:

One of the neatest things about this is the ability that users have to help “label” some of these images on Flickr.  Here’s a screenshot outlining some of that:

For more details, try the links below and here is a link to a great NY Times article to give you some more background.

Have a great day!
