KAHLE'S SEED VAULT FOR CULTURE

Lianne Milton for The New York Times 
A few days ago, Charlotte van de Hout published an article on the Longnow blog about Brewster Kahle, who is devoting his life to creating a physical repository of the world's books in case of digital disaster or drastic progress - a thought that made me look at my own books all the more tenderly. So far, his collection is house in 44 shipping containers in California, but if it is going to grow from the current 500,000 to 10 million, space - and how to locate books within that space - is going to become an issueSince I read the article, and becoming enthralled by the idea, I have been having recurring dreams about designing a space for his collection. For our collection. 


real dream project. If only.
