Announcing the Open Library

Aaron Swartz has announced a demo of the Open Library Project. I really admire this idea and wish him and the team the very best of luck with it. The technology looks really good and the team includes designer Rebecca Malamud who's work I have admired before at MappaMundi.net

Of course this is huge project, but I can't help feeling that it might be too big! I mean, where would you stop? Well actually hang-on. No you wouldn't ever stop at all. Just keep going and then eventually, all books would have to be there, like they are in the Bodleian Library here in Oxford.
