BK Museum, you my only friend

apiWell, this is the shit. The Brooklyn Museum has released their online collections API. This follows a string of smart, with-it moves, such as the “Tag you’re it” crowdsourcing project and contributions to the Flickr Commons project.

Oh, and Dance Parties! Afro-tech this Saturday! If only they weren’t sponsored by that big trendy department store. Sigh.

A swimsuit on a snowy day

We are totally in larf with flickr’s Commons section. Here is an insta-gallery of old awkward swimsuit photos! Here is an awesome picture of a bear with some french dudes from the Biblioteque de Toulouse! (A biblioteque is like a discoteque only instead of loud music you dance to the sound of yourself reading to yourself.)
