Common Ground 2009: A Flickr Meetup with NYPL and the Brooklyn Museum

If you are a fan of the The Commons on Flickr  and live in the NYC area, come to our Common Ground  meetup this weekend to celebrate—we’ve got tons and tons of neato stuff  to give away! The folks from the NYPL are going to be joining us to meet and greet and answer questions about the fantastic images being uploaded to The Commons. We’ll be running a really big slideshow curated by the Flickr community in the lobby, so come find us this Saturday October 3rd, 6-9:30 pm! That’s smack dab in the middle of a fabulous opera-inspired Target First Saturday , so there will be lots to do here that evening.
Don’t forget, this is a global meetup, check out these other venues if you live closer to these areas:
Sydney, Australia. A bit jealous of our colleagues over at the Powerhouse Museum who have been making preparations all week for an outdoor slideshow  on the facade of their building. The Powerhouse peeps are teaming up with the State Library of New South Wales for a joint event .
Brisbane, Australia. The State Library of Queensland is also presenting the slideshow outdoors on their Queensland Terrace—one of my personal favorite buildings  in all of Australia is the Queensland Library, so that should be an amazing event  in a great location!
Canberra, Australia. The Australian War Memorial is also taking part  with a projection in their orientation gallery.
Safety Harbor and Tallahassee, Florida. The State Archives of Florida are running two events  in the area.
Rochester, New York. George Eastman House is hosting an event in their theatre and that means you can meet Ryan …he’s the one we have to thank for the slideshow because he did a ton of work programming the voting tool and the slideshow via the Flickr API. Thanks, Ryan!
Corvalis, Oregon. Don’t miss the photograph on this event listing —these Oregon peeps have a sense of Flickr-humor and we love them for it.
…but perhaps the Swedish National Heritage Board has us all beat! They are hosting their event in the Medieval St. Karin Church ruin in central Visby on the island of Gotland, Sweden. That very same church ruin is actually pictured in one of the photographs  they’ve uploaded to The Commons. It kind of doesn’t get more meta than that!
Coming to a meetup? Tweet using the #CommonGround hashtag and if you upload photos to Flickr, tag them CommonGround2009 and we’d love to see them added to The Commons group . Hope to meet you there!
