You! Be Inspired! #0005 – NYT’s Lively Morgue, Festival of Colors, and PREVIIEW

by . May 16th, 2012

Every geek out there is probably giddy about this week, especially today. Today marks the release of the third Diablo game (which basically took more than a decade to make). Diablo 3 aside, we’ll be featuring some street artists this week and we’ll talk about the art of sticker bombing and wheatpasting. Enough about this week’s events and topics, today we give to you this week’s edition of You! Be Inspired! Here we go!

Lively Morgue – New York Time’s Photographs

It’s refreshing to find old photos being uploaded online and archived digitally. The New York Times recently created a Tumblr blog featuring photos from their physical archive of some hundred-thousands of photographs. Of course, they’re not posting the whole archive online; rather they’ll be uploading some choice pictures for everyone’s entertainment. They’ve called the online archive “Lively Morgue“.
