Article: Turning books into bits

This is an interesting article on MSNBC with information about what Brewster Kahle is doing now. Here's a couple of quotes:
And at the Internet Archive in San Francisco, Kahle and company are bolting together an even cheaper scanning system [than the Kirtas scanner] ? dubbed ?Scribes? ? that will travel to libraries around the country.
Libraries, in short, are already evolving into community digital research centers, staffed with professional guides to the vast quantities of text, audio, video and images available online, and equipped with the latest digital playback devices, from video screens to printers to audio systems.
By the way, in June 2004, Brewster Kahle joined the Board of Directors for Kirtas and is an investor in the company.
