Here is another fragment, this one photographic, that won’t make it into a presentation I’m working on:
It is a photograph taken looking out from our Napoleon Room. (Part of the presentation is about why we have a Napoleon Room.)
Speaking of photography: Via CNN, linking the past with the present through photographs; and via Wikipedia, the first photograph of a human.
Speaking of Wikipedia, there is an interesting article in the Chronicle about using the crowdsourced encyclopedia to document public art: “Scholars Use Wikipedia to Save Public Art From the Dustbin of History.”
Speaking of crowdsouring, the Archivist of the United States, who is blogging at AOTUS: Collector in Chief, posted about “Cultivating Citizen Archivists.”
