Commons on Flickr, Canberra, 4 December 2008

The National Library of Australia has a series of excellent talks on cultural aspects of the Internet. The next is by George Oates, program manager for Flickr's Commons project and former chief designer for Flickr, 4 December 2008:
Human Traffic, General Public
If there's one thing about Web 2.0, it's that we're realising that there are actually people using the internet. It's no longer about Human to Computer interaction, but rather Human to Human. The Commons on Flickr is an opportunity for Flickr members to participate in describing the world's publicly held photography collections. The key goals of The Commons on Flickr are to firstly show you hidden treasures in the world's public photography archives, and secondly to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer.

George Oates is the program manager for Flickr's Commons project and was the former chief designer for Flickr.

George Oates will be introduced by Paul Hagon,
Web Developer, National Library of Australia
Time: 13.00 to 14.00
Date: Thursday 4 December 2008
Venue: National Library of Australia Theatre
This is a free event, open to all
