Notes of a Binge Thinker

Thoughts from NTLP's Executive Director

Digital Public Library of America

Hi BTC

I have been hoping for a national wide movement on building a digital library since I started researching ebooks last year.  It seems to me that if we are to make a dent in the decision makers(publishers, resellers, authors,etc) of our reading ecosystem, then we need a national digital library, where we collectively we have more bang than any local or regional library ebook movement.  As it stands right now, we do not have much of a say on the decisions being made when it comes to ebooks.  A national library movement would make the decision makers stand up and take notice.

I hope the Digital Public Library of America will be that library.  They have a wiki and a discussion group.  If you are interested, join up and see what the fuss is all about.
