    we can never thank people like Brewster Kahle enough

  • Snowdrops in Spring

    Kahle took the library of libraries — the internet — and made a couple of copies of it, & keeps making copies. One he keeps in servers in San Francisco, the other in mirror servers in Alexandria, where the world’s most famous library burned 2,000 years ago. (His data survived the Arab Spring unscathed.) Through the Wayback Machine, you can see what the web looked like in 1996, 1997, and 2011. It’s just one arm of Kahle’s ambitious goal to provide the world with universal access to our knowledge.

You own it forever. Put it on your phone. Play it at parties. Turn it up' That’s the message on the Iowa City Public Library’s (ICPL) page for the newly-launched Local Music Project, a digital collection that could prove to be a game-changer for libraries."

Friends of the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library organized a "book flash mob." Participants wore a yellow hat, gathered at an assigned location at an assigned time and started reading. When a passerby asked one of the yellow-hatted readers what was going on, the reader would hand their book to that person. Each participant had brought a book to the event that was meaningful or had inspired them. Inside the book was a flyer asking the new owner of the book to do the same after reading it.
