George just announced about the coolest thing ever: the Commons. The Library of Congress has started sharing a fraction of their photo archive on Flickr under a special “no known restrictions” license.

You can tag, comment on, fave, and share these historical photos just like any other photo on Flickr.

And the collective wisdom will hopefully bubble up some great photos and metadata.
