Tag, You're It: Library of Congress Meets Flickr

Ever since the Library of Congress joined Flickr last week, the photo floodgates have opened: the LoC has contributed about 1,600 images dating back to the mid-1800s. In effort to help categorize the photos -- many of which lack basic description -- the LoC is asking the great Flickring masses to add tags and other identifying information. A handful have already turned up with 'food' tags -- a fascinating glimpse into our American way of eating. (via Serious Eats)
