Books are weapons in the war of ideas

David Weinberger describes a visit to the Open Content Alliance's scanning operation at Boston Public Library. A healthy dose of optimism after the sad news that Microsoft has stopped its scanning operation. The title of the post and the image on the right is from a U.S. Government war poster digitized by Boston Public. You can see the rest of the set or more from Boston Public at Flickr.

Congratulations to Boston Public and the Open Content Alliance.
