2. Your Photos Needed for Interfictions Anthology Cover

Via boingboing:

“The Interstitial Arts Foundation (IAF) has put up an open call for artists to submit art possibly to be used for the cover of their second Interfictions anthology (to be published in November)—and are using a Flickr pool so that everyone can see what’s been submitted. The IAF are all about any kind of art that mixes and matches across genre borders and reaching across all kinds of artistic lines, so crowd-sourcing the cover is a great way to (as they did with the first book) get beyond the usual artists and avenues for book cover art.”

3. Leximo : A Multilingual Dictionary

From their website:

Leximo is a Multi-Lingual User Collaborated Dictionary that lets you search, discover and share your words with the World.

Leximo is a “Social Dictionary” that invites users to submit words in every spoken language of the world. Since each word can be submitted by multiple users, definitions can vary widely in quality and thus other users can rank these definitions, so that the most popular definitions appear first.
