Open Library (Aaron Swartz)

From LISNews : Aaron Swartz--co-author of RSS, former member of W3C's RDF Core Working Group-- now, in partnership with Brewster Kahle and the Internet Archive, announces founding of the Open Library. This new global resource will be "a product of the people: letting them create and curate its catalog, contribute to its content, participate in its governance, and have full, free access to its data. In an era where library data and Internet databases are being run by money- seeking companies behind closed doors, it's more important than ever to be open."
