DIDIGITIZE!!! Why not? It will only take the weekend

Yes, I am looking at sites I marked and wanted to share. This one is short. I aspire to more digital than analog content. I still love books. But Barton Beebe showed me years ago that pdfs for articles was great. Greg Lastowka furthered that point by explaining the latest in note taking. And Rebecca Tushnet was into this move when tablets first were semi-consumer focused (yes, they existed as a notebook, Apple copied and refined a little and gets much credit whether deserved or not).

Anyway this link from Lifehacker has a ton of resources for those who wish to convert paper, images, audio, and video into all digital as well some storage tips.

Vintage Ad Browser

I’m guessing quite a few of us media/ip/tech law professor-type-folks can make use of this new site from Philipp Lenssen at Google Blogoscoped:

The site features a browsable and searchable gallery of over 100,000 print ads which I’ve categorized into tags and years, where available, cropped, scanned from books (mostly with the help of a scanning company), collected from CD-ROMs (like Marvel’s full run of Amazing Spider-Man) and websites (like eBay), found in Google Books’ magazines and more.

It joins Philipp’s existing and also useful “Cover Browser” site.
