Public Library* |Future Non Stop

The Internet brought the dream of providing access to all knowledge to everyone suddenly within reach. The Universal Public Library once seemed inevitable, a simple intersection of the trajectory curves of global personal computer distribution and Internet access penetration. However, the actual trajectory of the development is pointing in the opposite direction – libraries are being attacked, underfunded and could, indeed, go extinct. The dream of Public Library in the age of Internet, the dream of universal access to all human knowledge, must not be relinquished. And artists and hackers, as in many other instances, are taking upon themselves to make dreams reality.
