Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller

Amazing. I never knew there was video of this stuff. Youtube is awesome. Literally. Seriously. I am awed.

We are in an age right now where we are not only creating more than has ever been created, we are also archiving, sorting, and gaining access to the information of the past – which used to be viewable by only a select few. Some complain about this equalization of access, some worry about “owners” of content (much of it way past original copyright expiration) and the organizations that used to charge for access, but I think it can only drive us forward as a species.
