BBC To Open Their Archives For Free!|
From BBC News: "Greg Dyke, director general of the BBC, has announced plans to give the public full access to all the corporation's programme archives.
"Mr. Dyke said on Sunday that everyone would in future be able to download BBC radio and TV programmes from the Internet. The service, the BBC Creative Archive, would be free and available to everyone, as long as they were not intending to use the material for commercial purposes, Mr. Dyke added...
"(Mr. Dyke) said the new online service was part of the corporation's future, or 'second phase,' strategy for the development of digital technology...
"'I believe that we are about to move into a second phase of the digital revolution, a phase which will be more about public than private value; about free, not pay services; about inclusivity, not exclusion.'"
We at OTR.us salute this new stance from the BBC and are extremely excited for the launch of this new service! Perhaps this will be the impetus needed to get others to open up their vaults as well...

Have you heard about BookCrossing.com?|
What a great concept. This website takes that travelling gnome concept and actually put it to good use! If you are done with a book, why not share it freely with the rest of the world AND discover who picks it up and how far it travels. By registering your book before "releasing" it into the wild, future "captors" can go to the website and update your book's path through the physical world. I'm registered and intend to find some under-utilized books in my collection for repurposing before the week ends.
