Well, here’s some more exciting stuff. We’ve been in contact with the Internet Archive to let them know about LibriVox. Brewster Kahle (listen to his inspiring talk, Universal Access to All Human Knowledge), the founder of the Archive likes LibriVox, has invited us to participate in an event with them.
Along with Yahoo and a number of universities, Archive.org is launching the Open Content Alliance to scan and make available books from the public domain. LibriVox has been asked to make a recording of Henry James’ An International Episode, which if I understand correctly, will be one of the first books in the OCA project.
Read the rest of his comments.
Is Open Content the next step in the traditions of Open Source and an Open Network? Many people seem to think so (and wouldn’t it be great?). Working with libraries, government institutions, archives, technology companies, web companies– and we all are saying the same thing– it is time to have more great material available on the Internet and to be able to have it be open and free.
Exciting times for LibriVox and all you audiolit providers out there!
