Now Available: Brewster Kahle's Keynote Speech at Browsers in Books and Many Other Materials
The first "Books in Browsers" conference ended yesterday (congrats to Peter Brantley) at the Internet Archive in San Francisco.
Brewster Kahle's Keynote (Video and Text) is now available online.
The goal is Universal Access to All Knowledge. We want access to public domain materials, older out-of-print but in-copyright materials, and the newest materials that are being commercially sold.
Some updated IA stats plus comments organized around:
+ Books on Devices
+ Books in Apps
+ Plus, a large number of examples (from demos) and screenshots.
