Local ~ Eastman Online

I noticed this brief story in the City Newspaper this week about how the George Eastman House has joined a consortium of other photo institutions in sharing digitized images on Flickr in the guise of a project called The Commons. I am sure this is a big step and given the privatization of massive numbers of images, a salutary one. But according to the report, GEH has uploaded 219 images out of their collection of 140K digitized images. The total GEH collection includes 400K images.
