Loos, Lewdness, and Literature: Tales from the Boghouse

quote [ In the early 1730s, a mysterious editor (known only as ?Hurlothrumbo?) committed to print a remarkable anthology: transcriptions of the graffiti from England?s public latrines. For all its misogynistic and scatological tendencies, this little-known book of ?latrinalia? offers a unique and fascinating window into Georgian life. Maximilian Novak explores. ]

Tin Soldier

quote [ Metal. Magic. Gods. War. Voodoo. Mood Whiplash. The Beatles. Chocolate Cake. ]

Tin Soldier is an excellent web serial I've been reading for maybe six months now. It recently passed 100 installments and deserves much more attention than it currently has. More info in extended.

UC terminates subscriptions with world?s largest scientific publisher in push for open access to publicly funded research

quote [ As a leader in the global movement toward open access to publicly funded research, the University of California is taking a firm stand by deciding not to renew its subscriptions with Elsevier. ]

Making Space in Online Archives

quote [ I?m a librarian, and I see libraries as being primarily driven by access. If you want a book or an article or a piece of data, libraries will help you get access to them. Whereas archives are driven by preservation. For that book in the archive that you want to read, every time it?s pulled that off the shelf, the archivist is thinking if there?s some damage that?s happened to the book. ]

Many interesting links and opinions. Sorry, bit artsy.
