FreeCulture NYC photo-mob to produce enormous repository of free pix of Manhattan

Fred sez,

On Friday, March 28th (April 4th rain date), join Free Culture @ NYU and Free Culture @ Columbia on a quest to get the best shots of NYC. Bring your camera and a way to get around town for the biggest scavenger hunt in Free Culture's history.

All photos will be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons for inclusion into Wikipedia articles about NYC that need photos. We've got hundreds of locations, sites, and things to document for Wikipedia and it should be a really fun day.

Each member of the winning team will receive an iPod shuffle loaded with Creative Commons music! Second and third place teams will win copies of "Wikipedia, The Missing Manual" donated by O'Reilly.


(Thanks, Fred)

Update: Looks like rain on Friday the 28th, we're rescheduling Wikipedia Takes Manhattan until April 4th, same places and time.
