There's a two-day symposium on mass digitization of literature
going on right now at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Publisher Tim O'Reilly is giving a keynote speech called "Reading
2.0" at this very moment. It's a live webcast. Two minutes into
his speech, he has already shown Wikipedia as the future of the
encyclopedia. Adam Smith from Google will speak at 5 pm EST.
