Michael Hart: Birthday Remembrance

[In commemoration of Michael’s birthday, Jim Berger has written some reflections–Ed]

Michael Hart’s birthday comes around in just a few days. What do you remember?

Did you ever hear about the two buildings Michael disappeared in South Korea?

Or how about sitting out one of the riots during the 1968 Democratic Convention, with his girlfriend, atop a squad car?

If Michael’s life was not charmed, it certainly was interesting.

I can testify to keeping the water up in his furnace in the dead of winter while Michael was out of town. Michael’s home was storied and rightly so, for Michael was an inveterate collector of all things remotely interesting.

We played Frisbee golf, and once on Halloween, I savored an authentic, Star-Wars, light saber that lit up to perfection and made all the right noises.

But at Michael’s funeral, it became clear that I knew but half of it, if that much.

The dining room for lunch at the Eastland Suites Hotel & Conference Center was abuzz with fantastic stories and remembrances as we paused to break bread and personalize our grief with one another.

I had not known that Michael had been an Eagle Scout.

There is still much we could all learn about the man, and so, that is the question: What do you remember?

And with a bit of luck, we may even be able to share our stories on the radio. Negotiations to that effect are just getting underway. I am hopeful that one particular call-in program will find time for us, perhaps on Friday, at 10 a.m. Central Time.

As I say, negotiations are just getting underway. We’ll know more by Thursday. But that is something to shoot for. And dare I say, the richer and broader the response right here, the easier it will be for making a case to those who decide these things.

In that vein, I refer everyone to WILL – Focus – June 07, 2011, which 33 minutes into the audio file contains the last known phone call by Michael Hart to this particular radio, call-in program. Michael did not identify himself, but I recognized him, and we got together for lunch a short time thereafter.

It would be good to locate other calls of Michael’s from those audio files. It would be good to locate them all.

Who would join in such a search? That would require formally splitting up the task and zeroing in on topics about computers or
about books. I’m good for up to three hours of listening for Hart clips, if anyone else will join me.

Please consider that, and then let’s get in touch. But for the moment, for Michael’s birthday, what do you remember about Michael
Hart?

It’s time to celebrate an incredible man. Please share what you have, be it modest or grand. Just click on the edit button and insert your own text at the bottom of the box that opens up below. Then save the page. Together we can get the whole picture of Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg.

Michael Hart's birthday 67th birthday would have been Thursday March
6, 2014.  In commemoration, long-time friend Jim Berger has written

Birthday Remembrance
  by contributer Jim Berger and you

Michael Hart's birthday comes around in just a few days.  What do you
remember?

Did you ever hear about the two buildings Michael disappeared in South
Korea?

Or how about sitting out one of the riots during the 1968 Democratic
Convention, with his girlfriend, atop a squad car?

If Michael's life was not charmed, it certainly was interesting.

I can testify to keeping the water up in his furnace in the dead of
winter while Michael was out of town.  Michael's home was storied—and
rightly so, for Michael was an inveterate collector of all things
remotely interesting.

We played Frisbee golf, and once on Halloween, I savored an authentic,
Star-Wars, light saber that lit up to perfection and made all the
right noises.

But at Michael's funeral, it became clear that I knew but half of
it—if that much.

The dining room for lunch at the Eastland Suites Hotel & Conference
Center was abuzz with fantastic stories and remembrances as we paused
to break bread and personalize our grief with one another.

I had not known that Michael had been an Eagle Scout.

There is still much we could all learn about the man, and so, that is
the question: What do you remember?

And with a bit of luck, we may even be able to share our stories on
the radio.  Negotiations to that effect are just getting underway.  I
am hopeful that one particular call-in program will find time for us,
perhaps on Friday, at 10 a.m. Central Time.

As I say, negotiations are just getting underway.  We'll know more by
Thursday.  But that is something to shoot for.  And dare I say, the
richer and broader the response right here, the easier it will be for
making a case to those who decide these things.

In that vein, I refer everyone to WILL - Focus - June 07, 2011, which
33½ minutes into the audio file contains the last known phone call by
Michael Hart to this particular radio, call-in program.  Michael did
not identify himself, but I recognized him, and we got together for
lunch a short time thereafter.

It would be good to locate other calls of Michael's from those audio
files.  It would be good to locate them all.

Who would join in such a search?  That would require formally
splitting up the task and zeroing in on topics about computers or
about books.  I'm good for up to three hours of listening for Hart
clips, if anyone else will join me.

Please consider that, and then let's get in touch.  But for the

** In Memory of Michael Hart

literacy and opportunity for all people.

to snag some of his favorites at the Michael Hart Estate Book
Sale. After donating thousands of books to archive.org and thousands
to Goodwill, the Estate still has thousands of incredible books
waiting for you. They vary from his favorite sci-fi dating back to the
fifties, to over a dozen copies of Bridges of Madison County, and more
than enough Vonnegut. No early birds, no dealers, and prices will be
by whim. :)   

http://mhbooksale.wordpress.com/ will be updated through the week. The
sale will be held at 405 West Elm Street, Urbana, IL, 61801, on
September 8th and 9th from 9am-4pm. Can't wait to see you.

Thanks for these updates go to Project Gutenberg whitewasher Al
Haines, for this most recent of his many accomplishments on behalf
of great literature.


** Thanks!

We received this email message at Project Gutenberg:

"I cannot properly express my gratitude and thanks to everyone at
Project Gutenberg. To yourself, the staff, including the people who
empty the trash bins, thank you.... thank you... thank you.

  You see, I'm dying of an inoperable brain tumor. Doctors tell me I
have a few months at most. While meandering around the internet, I
stumbled across the Tarzan series, authored by Edgar Rice Burroughs,
which your organization has made available in e-books. These are
absolutely the favorite books of my childhood. I haven't read them in
fifty years. Reading these books again after so many years brings an
enjoyment I thought I'd never feel again. To many, this may sound
trivial, but following the adventures of 'The Lord of the Jungle,'
which I loved so much as a child, allows me a few hours every day to
escape the harsh realities of life."


** A new mirror site in Bulgaria

Welcome to our newest Project Gutenberg mirror site, sponsored by
e-book Ltd. of Sofia, Bulgaria.  They are "the first and the most
famous Bulgarian company specialized in the domain of e-book devices
and content.  Our goal is to popularize ebooks reading and to bring
them closer to people in our region. That's because we created our
mirror of Project Gutenberg."

The mirror is now listed in the download pages at www.gutenberg.org,
and may be accessed directly at www.gutenberg.myebook.bg

PG Monthly Newsletter (2012-07-04)

This is the Project Gutenberg Newsletter for July, 2012

In this newsletter:
* Birthday of the eBook
* Grand opening of self.gutenberg.org
* EBook #40000
* New eBook listings


* Birthday of the eBook

Today is July 4.  It is the Independence Day holiday in the United
States, and marks the 41st birthday of electronic books.  On this day
in 1971, in Urbana Illinois, Michael Hart had the opportunity, insight
and inspiration to digitize and share the United States Declaration of
Independence.

You can read this eBook today at www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1

Here are Michael's notes from our eBook #1, from an updated re-release
in 1993:

====================
The United States Declaration of Independence was the first Etext 
released by Project Gutenberg, early in 1971.  The title was stored
in an emailed instruction set which required a tape or diskpack be
hand mounted for retrieval.  The diskpack was the size of a large
cake in a cake carrier, cost $1500, and contained 5 megabytes, of
which this file took 1-2%.  Two tape backups were kept plus one on
paper tape.  The 10,000 files we hope to have online by the end of
2001 should take about 1-2% of a comparably priced drive in 2001.

This file was never copyrighted, Sharewared, etc., and is thus for
all to use and copy in any manner they choose.  Please feel free to
make your own edition using this as a base.

In my research for creating this transcription of our first Etext,
I have come across enough discrepancies [even within that official
documentation provided by the United States] to conclude that even
"facsimiles" of the Declaration of Indendence will NOT going to be
all the same as the original, nor of other "facsimiles."  There is
a plethora of variations in capitalization, punctuation, and, even
where names appear on the documents [which names I have left out].

The resulting document has several misspellings removed from those
parchment "facsimiles" I used back in 1971, and which I should not
be able to easily find at this time, including "Brittain."
====================


* Grand opening of self.gutenberg.org

We are very happy to announce a new Project Gutenberg service, the
Project Gutenberg Self Publishing Portal.  The Portal is online
at http://self.gutenberg.org

This site offers some much-desired features for contemporary authors
who want to freely distribute their works.  It is offered as a easier
to use and more suitable venue for such works, with greater
flexibility than www.gutenberg.org.

Visit http://self.gutenberg.org to view the collection, and learn
how to contribute.

October 2011: Loss of our Founder

As many people are aware, Project Gutenberg’s founder passed away on September 6.  Information about the life and legacy of Michael Hart is online here: www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Michael_S._Hart

Thanks to the many fans, friends, and eBook enthusiasts who shared in our sadness of this sudden loss.  Michael will be remembered fondly, and there is no doubt that his leadership in digitization and free distribution of literature has had a lasting impact.  Part of that legacy is the ongoing activity of Project Gutenberg, which continues unabated.

I do intend to maintain this monthly newsletter, and as always the newsletter welcomes contributions of all types.

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.

August 1998

“We consider etext to be a new medium, with no real relationship to paper, other than presenting the same material, but I don’t see how paper can possibly compete once people each find their own comfortable way to etexts, especially in schools.” (Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg in 1971)

September 1998

“I’ve gotten very interested in the great potential the net has had for making literature available to a wide audience. (…) I am very excited about the potential of the internet as a mass communication medium in the coming years. I’d also like to stay involved, one way or another, in making books available to a wide audience for free via the net, whether I make this explicitly part of my professional career, or whether I just do it as a spare-time volunteer.” (John Mark Ockerbloom, founder of The Online Books Page in 1993) Continue reading eBooks: 2011 – The ebook in ten points
