Sounds good. I'm leaving South Korea, but I have an
ameteur photographer friend staying behind, and she
just bought a scanner. She's agreed to release many of
her pictures under the GFDL.

The image copyright discussion reminds me of an idea
that has been going
through my head for a while. How about an organized
effort to create (shoot)
public domain photos of important
people/places/events? I am not a photographer
so I would be a bad person to lead this WikiProject,
but maybe there are
people on this list who would be interested in it.
Basically, the effort would have to be organized in
such a way that
- interested photographers put their names and
locations on the page and put
the page in their watchlist
- interested users add people, places, things,
events etc. to a To Do list.
Photographers add their names to the list if they
want to finish a task. The
task is moved into a "Finished tasks" list later and
the photos are uploaded.
Additionally, people who are willing to scan photos
sent to them (for people
without scanners or digicams) might enter themselves
into a third list --
don't know if that would be necessary.
What do you think? Given the international nature of
Wikipedia, I really see
the potential for a large and impressive effort to
get relevant photos from
all around the world.
