Get a Life

The Guardian is reporting that Google has secured to rights to disseminate the largest photograph collection in the world online.

About 10m images will be available, from Marilyn Monroe and JFK to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. About 97% of the pictures have never been seen before.

Quite a cool idea – somehow I’d say there more inspirational than provocative and genuinely thought-provoking; Life magazine never was one to innovate – hence why it’s defunct now.
