Unsplash - FINALLY safe images you can use on your blog without fear of a copyright suit.
When the web started people would grab any image they found and put it on their webpage ( which mostly consisted of college student home pages ).

I think it's a great idea that artists and photographers have an outlet to let their work be seen.

If not for that, George Romero would never have gotten the kind of exposure he got when nearly every TV station in the country played his movie over and over. To this day that movie is more iconic that most movies ever become.
