The Gutenberg Project

By Deane Barker • Posted on August 12, 2002

The Gutenberg Project: Gutenberg has been around since the Internet was very, very young – the Web wasn’t even born yet. It’s an effort to catalog as many free books and texts as possible. Gutenberg has thousands of books from hundreds of authors; all in the public domain, all free. Download, print, and enjoy.

I’m reading “Collective Knowledge: Intranets, Productivity, and the Promise of the Knowledge Workplace” by Robert Marcus and Beverley Watters and I ran across the origin of the Gutenberg name:

Johannes Gutenberg is given the credit for [...] the invention of printing with movable type and for the concept of unlimited reproduction. His first work, known as the Gutenberg Bible, was a 42-line [...] bible that appeared about 1456.
