Note: One thing you might have read on infoDOCKET multiple times is our admiration for Brewster Kahle and The Internet Archive. His vision and work remain vital and important. So, with that in mind here’s a video of a recent keynote address Brewster gave at the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Spring Meeting in Seattle. Btw, CNI’s leader Cliff Lynch.
Brewster Kahle’s speech is titled. Providing Universal Access to Modern Materials – and Living to Tell the Tale
The Internet Archive started by archiving the Web, but now works with hundreds of librarians and partners to create digital collections both centralized and distributed. The challenges of presenting modern materials yield different solutions for each media type. Kahle shares his vision of how cooperation, shared technology and risk can result in many winners in the digital library world.
