the day it all changed

"Tonight, Brewster Kahle, Internet Archive Founder and Chief Librarian, introduced what he calls his “BookServer” project. BookServer is a framework of tools and activities. It is an open-architectured set of tools that allow for the discoverability, distribution, and delivery of electronic books by retailers, librarians, and aggregators, all in a way that makes for a very easy and satisfying experience for the reader, on whatever device they want."

So starts this rave review of the launch of this impressive project which Open Library's George Oates told us about on her recent trip to London. It's also featured on the US if:book blog www.futureofthebook.org/blog.
