World's Oldest Substantial Book Digitized


Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript ? the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity ? is of supreme importance for the history of the book.

'Longest copyright ... ever'


From SlashDot.org: "The BBC is reporting that the United Nations' World Digital Library has gone online with an initial offering of 1,200 ancient manuscripts, parchments and documents. ... Astonishingly, the collection is covered by numerous copyright laws, according to the legal page. Use of material from a given country is subject to whatever restrictions that country places, in addition to any local and international copyright laws. With some of the contributions being over 8,000 years old, this has to be the longest copyright extension ever offered. There is nothing on whether the original artists get royalties, however."

Colbert Report Recent Clips on Newspaper Deaths


This one is from only a few days ago, on April 8th:

This Colbert Report clip of Phil Bronstein (editor-at-large of Hearst Newspapers and the SF Chronicle) specifically addresses how the internet is affecting newspapers. Mr. Bronstein says that Google and AOL are hurting newspapers because people are able to access free news without going directly to the newspaper's website.

Also, Colbert and Bronstein refer to how the music industry has shifted because of mp3s, Napster, and then iPods, and how newspapers might be able emulate that model, surviving despite free online news proliferation. Bronstein points out that people face jail if they download music illegally, and wonders whether people should go to jail for not paying for news content. Colbert mentions the First Amendment, in response.
