Brewster Kahle on “Universal Access to All Knowledge”

Nov 16, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good brief ovrview of a presentation by Brewster Kahle, founder of the Internet Archive. Hans de Zwart writes, "They are convinced that it is feasible to store all the world’s knowledge." And they have been doing an admirable job of it, scanning 3 million books (and making them available for free online) as well as web pages, audio and video archives, and more (I look forward to being able to contribute all my text, audio and video to the archive one day, and they are of course free to take whatever they want now). They have already stored massive amounts of data - 10 petabytes - and have learned some interesting things about how to deal with that.
