+ - A Federal Scanning Commission?->

Submitted by
Carl Malamud
Carl Malamud writes "John Podesta and I have written an open letter to President Obama, accompanied by a White House petition, calling for the creation of a Federal Scanning Commission. The group would be tasked to figure out a strategy to scan at scale, vastly increasing the scope of federal digitization efforts to include large parts of institutions such as the Smithsonian, Library of Congress, Government Printing Office, National Archives, and our national libraries."
