RE: alt-photo anniversary in 2009

I'm a young pup regards the list, I joined late 2004 and lurked for a while.

Maybe we could set up a flickr type gallery. Maybe willing list members
could put up one image and a short bio. It would be good to see what work
list members are creating and would be good promotion for alt photography. I
would be happy to administer it.

That's really neat - thanks Greg.
I think I joined in 1995 or 1996 - I do remember that unsw email address 
(University of New South Wales - which is in Sydney, Australia).
How can we celebrate?
