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.
