Link Love: 4/1/2011

Pittsburgh City Photographer Collection, 1901-2002, AIS.1971.05, Archives Service Center, University

  • My chosen Friday time-suck?: geotag, explore, and help ID thousands of historic photos of Pittsburgh on Retrographer.org [via Marguerite Roby, SIA].

  • And speaking of crowdsourcing, check out this powerful example. Dan Cohen runs an “experiment” to see how quickly his Twitter followers can identify a drawing of an ancient archeological artifact, and they nail it in about 9 minutes [via Nancy Proctor, Smithsonian Mobile].
  • We hinted at Ignite Smithsonian in last week's Link Love, but now more details are available, in the video below and on this website, where you can get all the details about free tickets, learn about the #MockNewMedia Twitter challenge, send a video postcard, or get the URL for the webcast on April 11th.
