Haha I’m completely incapable of social interactions in large groups and no one wants to take the step to actually get to know me I hate everything.

How To Scan 50 Miles of Historical Documents Into an Online Archive


Tracking the lightning quick development of modern cities is easy with Google Street View, but a big new project aims to provide context for the past 1,000 years of urban evolution in Venice, Italy. The Venice Time Machine will digitize and catalog a staggering amount of historical documents—a combined 50 miles worth of shelves!—then turn the data into an internet archive and adaptable 3D model.

Timing-wise, it certainly lines up with the zeitgeisty rush of cultural institutions—from the Met to the New York Public Library—putting their collections online and free for the public to browse. In this case, pulling together all the documents into a cohesive whole will be a pretty epic challenge, and one that’s been centuries in the making.”  - Kordan Kushins, Gizmodo
