Millions of Historic Images Uploaded to Flickr

More than 12 million historic copyright-free images will soon be available to anybody with an internet connection, thanks to big data evangelist Kalev Leetaru. 

Leetaru, a scholar at Georgetown University, has already uploaded nearly 3 million of the images to Flickr, which have been sourced from 600 million library book pages and scanned by the Internet Archive organization — and, they are fully searchable because of the tags that have been automatically added.  

The books, up to this point, have been treated only as text and the images have largely been ignored, which is a shame because so many of the originals, dating back to 1500, have been lost or severely damaged, says Kalev.

Because it takes Conservatives so damn long to catch up with everyone else.

THESE 16 DOGS ARE HEROES. THEY ARE ALSO PIT BULLS.

Virtually every dog relishes a loving scratch behind the ears and some sweet, vocal praise. But dogs identified as pit bulls get a bad reputation and a lot less love.

Try not to cry as you read the full stories behind these heroic pit bulls here. 

True Doggy Style!
