  • Open Library lending digital books

    This just in. The Open Library, you know that awesome website with the terrific design and great dataviz options, is lending digital books to anyone whose library has a working relationship with OverDrive. Gary Price explains more with links for further reading. I am very curious to see if a library without all the print-book baggage [disclaimer: I love to read print books also] can really make this ebook thing make real sense to people without the majority of the battling-licenses overhead that I think makes OverDrive seem so wonky in our brick and mortar libraries. Go to the lending library and see how it works. [thanks peter]

  • John Doe - Full Episodes and Clips streaming online for free - Hulu
    Shared by cygnoir
    Hulu recommended this show to me a few weeks ago. If a dear friend hadn’t said he enjoyed it so much, I might have given up. I’m glad I didn’t. The flaws are entirely ignorable, and it’s a lot of fun.
    John Doe: John Doe is a mysterious man who rises from the water off an isolated island possessing knowledge of literally everything in the world, yet having no memory of who – or even what – he is.
