Don't Miss the Common Ground This Weekend!

Common Ground: A Global Meetup

If you happen to walk by a museum or a library one evening this weekend, and there's a light on inside, or perhaps a flicker in the window, don't pass it by. There's a good chance that you stumbled on The Common Ground: a community curated meetup.

The Common Ground gatherings are being hosted by museums and libraries around the world to celebrate The Commons on Flickr and the wonderful community that has made it flourish. There will be a slideshow and snacks! No, not boring vacation snaps, but a slideshow of photos that were chosen from across The Commons by anyone who took a few minutes to vote on their favorites.
