Crowdsourced Photography (but not at NGS)

Look what The New York Times is doing today:

"Attention: everyone with a camera, amateur or pro. Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 (U.T.C./G.M.T.), as thousands of photographers simultaneously record “A Moment in Time.” The idea is to create an international mosaic, an astonishingly varied gallery of images that are cemented together by the common element of time."

Now ask yourself: Why hasn’t National Geographic organized a crowdsourcing project like this one?
