Computerworld Honors image
In case we are selected as the top winner out of the five Finalists for the Computerworld 21st Century Achievement Awards on June 6th, we’re supposed to have sent the Computerworld folks some elements (images and video) that represent what ibiblio does (and did as sunsite and metalab). Then they will make a little video montage out of it.
Last year’s winner, the MIT Open Courseware Project, ended up looking like this.

What would you say represents at least part of what we’ve been doing in the past dozen years? Send me links or post here pleeeeeze! Pointers for screen grabs, pictures of folks who’ve been involved, primo collections, other things?

  4. Now, you *are* including Doctor Fun for a bit of light relief, right? Also, Henriette, this month’s agriculture highlight, is pretty funky. :)

    I’d suggestion my own collections, of course, but ahead of it perhaps Project Gutenberg.

    IMHO. YMMV. etc. etc.

  5. Paul Jones says:

    The problem here is that each image is shown so briefly (see link above to MIT video). Text is almost invisible in this context or is at best only a visual element.
    Dr. Fun is too deep for such a context :->

    you have covered much above. i can help with more images.

    pictures of many of our old co-workers:
