When I was at the Library of Congress working on our contribution to the Flickr Commons project, we had the photos and they were uploaded for all to see but it felt like something was missing.
There needed to be more of a destination for the community to gather so that the community could get to know each other and for the Library of Congress staff to get to know the community… forming relationships.
Well, the Flickr community launched a Flickr Group dedicated to discussing the photos that had been contributed to the common, which is AWESOME but it didn’t stop there.
Members of the community have recently launch Indicommons, a blog which dives even further into the photos and the institutions which posted them.
If like me, the Flickr Commons project and it’s photos has captured your imagination. I’d definitely think that this blog is a must read.
