The Civil War 150 Legacy Project : Document Digitization and Access…07.29.11

29 07 2011

The Civil War 150 Legacy Project : Document Digitization and Access is a joint project between the Library of Virginia and the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission. The Legacy Project is an endeavor to collect, digitize and make publicly accessible historically significant, never before seen, original Civil War materials located in Virginia and held by private citizens. Donors have the opportunity to bring materials to scanning events held in their communities; have those materials scanned and evaluated; and return home with their items that same day. These images will be added to a free searchable collection maintained on the Library of Virginia web site accessible via the Internet. Renee Savits (Eastern Region) and Laura Drake Davis (Western Region) coordinate the Project. This video describes the Legacy Project and shows scenes from a scanning event.”

Augmented Reality ID – Face Recognition Coming to iOS 5…07.27.11

27 07 2011

“Augmented ID is a TAT concept that visualizes the digital identities of people you meet in real life. With a mobile device and face recognition software from Polar Rose, Augmented ID enables you to discover selected information about people around you. All users control their own augmented appearance, by selecting the content and social network links they want show to others. Modifying your augmented ID is easier than fixing your hair in real life and, of course, TAT Cascades will make sure you look great!

Save the Troy, Michigan Public Library…07.22.11

22 07 2011

From BoingBoing:

“Steamed Punk sez, ‘The Troy,Michigan Public Library will close unless the citizens pass a dedicated millage. Normally this would be no big deal, here in Troy there is a well financed group that ruthlessly undermines the efforts of library supporters. Forty years ago Issac Asimov, E. B. White and other supported the newly opened library with letters to the kids encouraging them to make the most of the library. With your help the people of Troy can enjoy the library as Asimov, Suess, and other intended for years to come!’ “
