Harper's Magazine on the Prelinger Archive

Internet archivist Rick Prelinger sez, "Harper's Magazine's Gideon Lewis-Kraus spent a lot of time with us and wrote a smart (and kind) piece about Prelinger Library and where he thinks it's pointing."

Rick Prelinger and Megan Shaw Prelinger, experimental amateur librarians…think the conflict between a so-called digital culture and a so-called print culture is fake; they think we should stop celebrating, or lamenting, the discontinuous story of how the circuits will displace the shelves, and start telling a continuous story about how the two might fit together.

This is a great piece — and the Prelinger Archive is amazing.
