Michael Hart 1947-2011

Two days ago, on the 6th September 2011, Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, was found dead in his home in Urbana, Illinois, aged just 64.

Michael invented the eBook (electronic book) in 1971 when he typed the U.S. Declaration of Independence into the Xerox Sigma V mainframe at the University of Illinois in celebration of the American Bicentennial. Just six out of the then 100 users on the network downloaded the file, but it was from these humble beginnings that Michael founded Project Gutenberg, which is now recognized as one of the earliest and longest-lasting online literary projects. Continue reading Michael Hart 1947-2011

Project Gutenberg’s CEO and Founder together in Illinois

PG founder Michael Hart and PGLAF CEO Greg Newby will be on the panel for the upcoming symposium, Fifty Years of Public Computing at the University of Illinois, held on the University of Illinois campus. The registration is free but there are limited spaces so if you want to see both Michael and Greg then you’ll need to register quickly.

Thursday April 15 from 1:30-3pm
Alice Campbell Alumni Center
601 S Lincoln Ave, Urbana, IL 61801

Participants will discuss the meaning and legacy of ten Illinois projects that shaped public computing, beginning with PLATO in 1960. The innovative founders of these projects, as well as prominent scholars in the field and early users, will discuss Illinois’ special place in the history of public computing, reflect on current and future projects such as the Urbana-Champaign Big Broadband (UC2B) proposal, and discuss how to extend this culture of innovation into the future. Continue reading Project Gutenberg’s CEO and Founder together in Illinois

The People Behind Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg LogoThere’s no doubt PG would not be where it is today without Michael Hart and the tens of thousands of volunteers from around the world. As you can imagine, it’s impossible to name every person. What Wiki Team member Ricardo F. Diogo has done is put together a page on the Gutenberg Wiki naming the people heading up the core parts of gutenberg.org.

If you don’t already know who is;

  • Founder and Executive Coordinator
  • CEO of the PGLAF
  • Production Directors (Aus, NZ, UK, US)
  • Webmaster
  • Newsletter Editor
  • Posting Team
  • Cataloguing Team
  • Wiki Team

Then go take a look at The People Behind Project Gutenberg Wiki page.

[UPDATE] This Wiki page is not yet complete so if there are any additions you think should be on there, then please email Ricardo (his email is on the Wiki page)

Anacleto Search of Project Gutenberg’s eBooks

Gutenberg volunteers & other interested folks: Here’s something new to try. It’s a search engine that includes fielded searches, plus text, for the PG content. It enables searching the files (as Google does), and parses the catalog for database-style searches (like our Yahoo search). It’s fresh.

Please email Anna Tothfalusi (atothfalusi@tesuji.eu) with any feedback or questions.

The site:


The interface is sparse, but the “help” link shows syntax examples…”Advanced search” offers some drop-downs. Ideas for the interface, search functionality, etc. would be welcome.

I hope to make this one of the PG search options at gutenberg.org.

Thanks in advance for feedback & ideas.
