Projects to Watch: Library of Congress Flickr Pilot

As the saying goes, many hands make the work light. The advent of Web 2.0 applications has facilitated collaboration on many levels, and the Library of Congress has decided to jump in. They have millions of pictures in their collections, and many of them have incomplete information — they are missing names of subjects, locations, and photographers. They have made a total of 3,000 photos from two of the more popular collections available on a flickr page where the viewing community is invited to tag them with the missing information.

Harnessing the power of the Internet community to build the human knowledge base is an interesting social experiment which could yield many interesting new applications. To stay in tune with this important project to watch, visit the Library of Congress blog.
