OccupyWeb photo archive
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 5:39 PM.

A picture named pa.gifEven though the photos on occupyweb.org scroll by quickly, the app behind the website has been keeping an archive of the photos. I was hoping to find the time to write the code to archive them in a browsable way. Now I've got that working.  #

Here's how to get to the archive... #

You'll see in the upper-right corner of the home page, there's now a dropdown menu. In the menu, in reverse-chronologic order, is a list of the days we have archived. There's a screen shot of the menu to the right. #

The pages are fairly huge, some with as many as 1500 pictures. All of them are linked to the Flickr page, so you can find the photographer, and see what the licensing terms are. Or leave a comment.  #

Why look through the archive? The pictures are great, and they document something that's pretty amazing, over wide distances, which would not be possible without the Internet. And you can see the creativity of the people who are protesting and the photographers who are recording the events. There's some wonderful art and history in these pictures. May be worth spending some time with. I plan to, myself. :-) #
