Tech News

Just some interesting things related to the tech world I found floating around.

  • Open Library (via David) – “What if there was a library which held every book? Not every book on sale, or every important book, or even every book in English, but simply every book—a key part of our planet’s cultural legacy.”
  • Ethan on why cats should be censored – Not really. I believe they should, but that’s not his point. His point is that for every technology that allows us to do cat-blogging we are creating a new vehicle for samizdat. (Unfortunately, he doesn’t use that word. Yes, it’s overused, but it’s oh so cool looking.)
  • Jonathan does a bit on technology and non-technology (edumacation people) are creating new networks for gender empowerment. Two data points, but still interesting.
  • David Weinberger (again) is sounding an awful lot like a free-marketeer. I’m wondering if that’s permissible for liberals. On a related note, am I the only one who thinks Bush’s conservative government has done more to give state support to US corporations than any other government has done for their corporations except communist governments?
