Universal Access to Human Knowledge

I had to share this with everyone because I thought it was, well…it’s kinda beyond words, but it’s noteworthy to say the least.

 

While I was in orientation today, my instructor talked about the ways that learning has changed through the years and the impacts the “information age” does, or potentially could have, on society. He brought up this website titled the Internet Archive. The goal:

 

The Internet Archive is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public and to make this information available to anyone, anywhere.

 

Right now, they are working on making the entire library of Congress available online. I’ve spent some time there finding out all kinds of historical and political things I never knew. Always good to be educated.

One thought on “Universal Access to Human Knowledge

  1. yeah, it’s so amazing how knowledge has proliferated all over the place since everybody started getting online. even though alot of it is misinformation, you can’t help but wonder how we all learned before the internet..I think it was through these things they called “Books”. haha 🙂
    ryc: haha, I’m glad you got a kick out of whitesnake 🙂 man, listening to that song reeeeeeally takes me back. I don’t remember the girl in the video (you know, the one dancing in front of the lead singer while he was sitting on the bed), but she was hot!
