Flickr hosts 'Another 24 Hours' - 8th August

I love this concept - a snap shot in time from around the world. Sign-up to Flickr, add the Flickr 888 group and share the 8th August from wherever you are in the world. But if you just want to watch the photos come in then pop on over, it's free and open!

8th August - d'ya think they'll be one or two from the Olympics Opening Ceremony then!?!?

This from the group home page
Given the success of last year’s event, we hope that you’ll join us in celebration of another 24 Hours of Flickr – Flickr 888 on Friday, August 8th, 2008 (8-8-8!), a most auspicious day!

How can you participate? Take a photo any time during the twenty-four hour period that’s August 8th where you are and then share it with the group. We’ll accept one (1) contribution per Flickr member into the group from noon PST Friday, August 8th until Tuesday, September 2nd, noon PST, 2008.

We’ve partnered with the cool folks at MOO to create unique Flickr 888 Postcard Packs. Those images with sufficient resolution (1795x1287 pixels) that feature “safe” content (as defined in our Community Guidelines), will be printed and sold in postcards packs this coming fall at MOO. We’re still working out the final details of how many, how much, etc., and we’ll share the full details here in the group when we’ve got our ducks in a row.

So, mark your calendars, and get ready to capture August 8th in all its glory.

Oh, and here are the rules (as of 1st Aug) - be aware that you sign away your rights to the photo you add to the group:
