Open Clip Art Library is trying to hit the 10,000 clip art in our new system mark. While this number might not be huge in the modern User Generated Content space, the quality of the collection, and considering our old collection is about 10K in size already, its a good happy number that is growing at a regular pace.
This is our push for this month, on the path towards Libre Graphics Meeting 2009 in Montreal, to get more clip art, more users, and have fun while doing it. So, please jump in an submit clip art. If something bugs you about the site, or project, get on the roadmap, develop the project software, and join our communication channels.
Nicu is on-board. Are you?
But now a couple of things are aligned and the Open Clip Art Library deserves a share of the spotlight:
First, the number of images uploaded at this very moment is 9,323, very close to a round 10,000 (yeah, we still have some thousands not yet imported from the old site, but only those are easily reachable).
Second, the project was launched in March 2004, so this month will mark its 5 years anniversary.
Putting those two next to each other, the conclusion is very tempting: a joined effort to hit the 10,000 images milestone until the end of March 2009. I’m in, how about you?
I’m doing my part with clip art of the week posts. If so help by submitting your SVG clip art, help develop the site, or blog about this to spread the word! Its the month of clip art towards 10K, oh, and the 5 year anniversary for the project! Happy clip art renewing
Also, we have some other fun things brewing right now on the project behind the scenes which hopefully will be announced in the coming days.
I’m also tagging this push as a couple of my daily ideas, which I still haven’t made an announcement about: http://rejon.org/wiki/IDEA_20090304_Open_Clip_Art_Library_Release_Roadmap and http://rejon.org/wiki/IDEA_20090303_Open_Clip_Art_Library_10K.
