- The National Library of Australia has a beta service of its “Historic Australian Newspapers” (1803 to 1954) digitisation program. Newspapers published in Australia before 1955 are public domain. It has a pretty flexible interface and search function which is great. See, for example, quaint historical cigarette advertising. You can check out the tag cloud, create an account and improve the OCRed text, or leave comments. (via WP:AWNB)

- vi.sualize.us is like del.icio.us for images. I’m going to try it. Wouldn’t it be neat if there was like, an open source version of that, and we ran it for all Wikimedia users, with automatic logon, and you could tag your favourite Commons images?
Yeah, I know I’m dreaming… :)
