The Smithsonian announced today that they have released 2.8 million images into the public domain (CC0 license). In celebration of this I made a bot you can follow that will post one random image from the set every 8 hours:

@alexl I'm ok with that
"open access to who I like"?
@alexl it's cc0, anyone from gab can make a bot of their own. I put my labor into making this bot, I get to choose where I host it and who gets to see it
The value of your bot is zero compared to the work of authors of that archive and luckily there are better people than you out there who believes in equality and freedom of speech. I'm going to block intolerant people like you, don't spend time replying.
