Gleich zwei mal hat in den letzten Tag das Internet Archive von sich reden gemacht.
IA-Gründer Brewster Kahle kritisiert in einem Video-Interview von Mario Sixtus Googles Scan-Programm.
Und Peter Suber, Open Access News, meldet:
The Internet Archive (IA) has won the Microsoft Education Award from the from the San Jose Tech Museum’s Tech Award program (awarded by the museum, funded by Microsoft). From the acceptance speech by Rick Prelinger, the IA Board President:
Openness and interoperability made the Net work….Openness and interoperability will make it possible for the world to enjoy universal access to information. We need to make sure that openness is at the core of all of our efforts. We hope that cultural material will be shared and distributed as freely as the law allows.
This is the great opportunity of our era. It’s a bigger task than any single organization or company can or should achieve by themselves. Through partnerships with public and private entities, with for-profits and non-profits, we hope to do our part. Please join us.
