Last week I participated in the Books in Browsers 2010 Conference at the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive is a wonderful organization that has been capturing the history of the internet since the mid-1990s. Brewster Kahle is the director of the archive and was a very generous host.
The Books in Browsers conference was an amazing collection of people who are working to make books available on any device through the internet. I was very inspired by the talks that the participants gave about the wonderful work in this area. We look forward to rolling out features that leverage this technology in the near future.
During the conference, Brewser asked for volunteers to help move 2.88 petabytes of storage space from the loading dock to the place where they would later be installed. I volunteered and was the last person on the fireman's line that passed the servers to through the building.
Below is a video montage of photos of the fireman's line:
