Wikimedia Commons:

Not sure why I hadn’t run accross the Wikimedia Commons site before today, but I’m glad I finally did. Every time I find another wiki site like this I just find the concept very powerful. I just think it’s so cool that people would put their work into the public domain without the normal restrictions that copyright imposes. There are pictures, paintings, maps, drawings, audio files…and it appears new submissions are coming fast and furious.

On a side note, it’s actually pretty impressive the way the Wikimedia Foundation seems to be growing. If people start to really accept the idea of sharing content for the greater good, we may very well be on our way to a better place.

Looking at some of the premium photos, I think a masthead redesign here just may be in order…


this is really great…..
