Flickr is one of the leading photo sharing and organising websites.  Once uploaded, via a collaborative process, people can comment and tag your photos.

last week Flickr announced a free terabyte of space.  Just how big is a terabyte? Flickr describe it as “you could take a photo every hour for forty years without filling one”.

In addition Flickr is now allowing video upload.

Libraries and local history organisationss are already curating their  collections online and I predict that these current developments will certainly see more and more digitised content becoming available online via Flickr and other avenues.
