Dear friends and oclleauges,

The following story from BBC may be quite interesting for those of us who
are avid bookwerms.

Universal access to all human knowledge could be had for around $260m, a
conference about the web's future has been told.

The idea of access for all was put forward by visionary Brewster Kahle, who
suggested starting by digitally scanning all 26 million books in the US
of Congress.
