Calling all compulsive taggers


© Bruce Gilden / Magnum Photos

Magnum Photos is looking for a few good taggers — 50 taggers to be exact — to participate in some crowd-source photo tagging.  Hoping to make its archives more accessible, and take advantage of the fact that many of us spend too much time in front of our computers, Magnum Photos is initiating a collaborative annotation project and is looking for volunteer taggers who love photography and want to help shape its site into an online community.  At present, Magnum has 500,000 images online but only 200,000 have information attached to them.  If you’re interested in participating, you can sign up now to become a Magnum tagger.
