the open library project

Many thanks to Lia at the Experiment for forwarding this Chronicle article on Aaron Swartz, co-creator of RSS and Reddit who now apparently is interested in the “modern library.” His vision, the Open Library project, could be described as a user-generated mashup of WorldCat and Wikipedia – very promising. Judging from his track record, I think that we are lucky to have Aaron on our side.
