Flickr Commons growing

Saw this mentioned on Open Access News: Flickr Commons growing; New York Public Library joins. That is very cool!

The list of institutions participating in the Flickr Commons continues to grow-- important, and prestigious public institutions all using open licenses, and inviting the public to join them in constructing new knowledge around the collections.

The big mo is in full-swing. I pity the public institutions that are on the wrong side of this movement. Someday they will look back and wonder how they got it so wrong.
