Corbis Opens MOFAA – A Virtual Museum

It sounds like a great idea. MOFAA.ORG : Museum of Art for the Arts.
The stock photo houses that have been gobbling up all of the rights for some of the greatest photographic images in history, give something back to the community.
The ability to see these photographs, at least online.

Here is the full story:

When we went to site, we found 3 levels or floors.
The first floor was general admission – freebie
Then you went to the 2nd floor , for members, and the 3rd floor for benefactors.
Benefactors ?? Hmmm. Would that mean we get invited to virtual cocktail parties to virtually meet the artists? And have some virtual wine and cheese?
Perhaps a new web page could be named in honor of a benefactor.

Ok, I’m just kidding around, but we would love to see more of the images available to be viewed by more of the people. We know you’ve got em.

After a phone call to Corbis, we found out how to do this all. Wish it was a little clearer on the MOFAA site though.
Here’s how to become a member: Go to Corbis.com, log in or sign up.
Yes, It’s still free. You will generate a user name and password giving you access to the exhibitions.

The concept is sound. Let’s give them a chance to work out the kinks.
And lets see if the other companies follow suit. We just want to look.

Remember, even though they give you an address and floor plans, THIS IS A VIRTUAL MUSEUM!

By the way, have you noticed that when you go to the YouTube site, you have a choice of watching the videos in high quality?
Check it out sometime, You’ll be amazed at the difference.
