flickr commons developments

I am not part of the Library of Congress Flickr project team, and I in no way speak for them.

There is a lengthy discussion on Wired and at Found History about The Commons on Flickr, given that Yahoo laid off key staff member George Oates who shepherded the project. It doesn't seem that the project is in any imminent danger, but a dedicated group has stepped forward to evangelize, innovate, and curate thematic sets from the across the collection. I'm thrilled to see a community of use developing around The Commons, but it's sad that this is what precipitated its full coalescence.
