Well, now, that slideshow was too short. I love Leonard Freed, who I got to meet at the end of his life.
In his article on the Lens Blog about Magnum requesting help tagging its photos, James Estrin quotes Todd Carter, the co-founder and chief executive of Tagasauris: "People who would balk at doing this for giants like Getty or Corbis would be happy to help this particular collective of photographers and preserve part of photography’s cultural heritage."
No opinion about that, but it seems like an interesting and probably worthy project, in a Wikipedia kind of way.
