    I guess there’s never been a takedown notice filed on the Declaration?

    The opening credits of Three Days of the Condor (1975, Robert Redford) has an excellent scene of book digitization’s early days.

    Not before I was born! Us old fogies use the Intertubez as well. 

  5. Thanks, Cory! As the old-ish fogey who wrote the post … there is a lot of history in the cultural heritage technology community that needs to be revived. This is one in an irregular series on topics that I also lived through. The title came from a phrase that one of my mentors used on me: “When did you last visit this important historical site or museum?” “Before you were born…” ;-)
