Daniel Reetz, founder and steward of the DIY Book Scanner community
Tuesday, March 23, 12:30 pm Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
The DIY Book Scanner community (founded in June 2009) has produced a diverse ecosystem of book scanning hardware and software to address a wide range of human needs, both domestically and internationally. Daniel will motivate these efforts with case studies from the community, and hope to foster discussion on the future of digital books in light of these unmet needs.
Daniel will be bringing and demonstrating how scanner works at this lunch talk.
