Interesting that they have chosen flickr… so these could definitely be used for art purposes. These are remixable (collage! digital mashup! video!) and shareable by attribution (if I’m reading the cc correctly).
“An incredible archive of US Army medical photos and illustrations is being made available free under a Creative Commons Attribution license on Flickr by the National Museum of Health and Medicine:
This previously unreported archive at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C., contains 500,000 scans of unique images so far, with another 225,000 set to be digitized this year.”
..and here’s the boingboing article about it.

Very interesting article on the political nature of collaboration tech/IT projects, such as web2.0 technologies:
The three most common objections raised to any new collaboration technology (including Web 2.0 ) are security (access control, compliance and governance); cost (initial price and TCO); and productivity (which processes the technology supports and what is the expected cut in cycle times if everything goes well). In working with clients on these objections we find that they often become political. Selection of the collaboration technology is political, who uses it and how can become political. Any resources dedicated to a collaboration project often become political. Changes in compensation to support collaborative behaviors become political. In essence, anything to do with collaboration can become political very quickly!

Although not specifically library related, considering how many seminars, workshops, and conferences we all attend, this might be an interesting webinar (and free!)

Events and meetings are a critical element of your overall market relationship management (MRM) strategy – providing customers, employees, partners, and franchises a powerful channel to experience your brand message. Meanwhile, event technologies have moved from being an adjunct support capability to being an essential part of every event or meeting. Unfortunately, too often, events are managed as one-time audience interactions and not as part of a continuous relationship that can address the audience needs over time. Join Stephen Saber CEO, CrossTech Group, with Chris Copelas, Director of Business Development, CrossTech Partners, as they discuss how Second Circle Technologies are transforming the way companies use these interactions to gain a competitive advantage.
