Makeshift librarians in the wild.
Some fantastic links littered the floor during yesterday’s discussion about
the Web—there is just always more to see, isn’t there? This blog
catalogs various public library projects—including its own
Library (136 kilobooks in size).
What’s fascinating is that their library is just one peer in a network of
book-sharing peers. (It’s with great fanfare that I now affix my ‘leeching’ tag
to this post!) Yes, you can use their let’s share
books project to host your own
lovely library of electronic books. (See the dropdown that says 20 librarians
online on the right-hand side.)
The blog has a wealth of interesting posts, including a tutorial on
How to Be(come) an Amateur
As h0p3 has said, quoting Francis Bacon: knowledge is power.
