Hero image

Last week I pointed to an interview with one of my personal web heroes, Shelley Bernstein from the Brooklyn Museum.

This week's recommended media is this webcast of a presentation by Flickr and The Commons on Flickr founder George Oates. Fast-forward through the first 6 minutes or so of Smithsonian guy, and see how George has inspired the keepers of public heritage collections all around the world to set their photographs free.
