Sprint for Shakespeare
The Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford has just announced its intention to digitize its first collected edition of the works of William Shakespeare, "to publish our First Folio online for the benefit of everyone." (Since most of us can't afford the $5 million price tag for our very own FF.) The Sprint for Shakespeare Campaign--Olympic language pun surely intended--hopes to go for the gold, i.e., hopes to raise £20,000 ($31,000) for this project.
