The DIY Book Scanner community has been crazy-active lately. Seems like a new scanner build happens almost daily (though I’m sure it’s less than that).
The DIY Book Scanner project as a whole continues to gain academic cred — it’s been cited in several papers, shown at 26C3, and spoken about at several universities, including NYLS. Next week, I’ll be speaking at UND in Grand Forks, North Dakota (details forthcoming). March 23rd I’ll be speaking at Harvard’s Berkman Center, and user Misty De Meo just presented her work with DIY Book Scanner technology at the OLA conference. More on Misty and the projects she works on.
I am so honored to be a part of this community. It’s incredible what people have done with this basic technology.
Sorry for the silence here lately; have been dealing with some personal issues.
