Google Life Archive

No, the 'Google Life Archive' is not the digital database backup for your 'iThink'...

There's been alot of buzz about Google's Life archive. It's dedicated to millions of Life magazine's historic photos.

I truly live for visual reference like this. This is definitely an awesome collection. It demonstrates the potential of digital media to continually expand & organize humanity's countless artistic endeavors.

I did a search for monkey photos. These stuck out at me:

Engraving of a Monkey Stiking a Pose

A tiny, helpless simian life form that we strapped into a metal cylinder & propelled into space.

Dirty hippy monkey playing the drums in a rock n' roll band
