Four short links: 24 Mar 2009

Photos, Photos, Power, and Pretty:

  1. Wikimedia Commons — huge selection of public domain photos. Mindboggling how painful the hierarchical interface is to use vs a simple full-text search. (via Pete Warden)
  2. Power To The People: 7 Ways to Fix The Grid, Now (Wired) — To fix the grid, then, we don’t need another layer of oversight. We need to tweak the system so that companies are rewarded—not punished—for investing in the grid. (via Freaklabs)
  3. Great Photographs of the Economic Crisis — Slate project to build a Flickr pool of photographs documenting the economic crisis. This Depression’s Dorothea Lange will be a Flickr pool and not a person.
  4. Little Red Riding Hood — The Animated Infographic is another gem from Flowing Data. I’ve embedded the video below, see the link for the backstory.
