Librivox in the Montreal Gazette

Craig Silverman, who wrote us up for the NY Times, has published another LibriVox article in the Montreal Gazette. The text is available on his blog:
LibriVox and the power of distributed communities

Craig quotes Jon Udell re: projects such as LibriVox and Wikipedia:

“From my perspective, the key value of this is in changing people’s expectations about the relationship between being a consumer and being a producer,” he says. “For several generations we’ve been trained to be consumers … the option to be a producer in a variety of ways doesn’t even occur to people.”

Interesting, eh? I do find it to be extraordinarily satisfying to produce these recordings.  Thanks for another great article, Craig!
