Further to the “Surface” technology I mentioned yesterday, you can see it in action for yourself in this ABC News story (about halfway in). NOTE: Sometimes it will say that the previous link doesn’t exist, which is generally rectified by refreshing your browser.
Also on the convention front, I’m pleased to announce that the Library has its own “embed” who will be covering both party conventions for us.
Photographer Carol M. Highsmith, who has already donated to the Library and the American people a substantial copyright-free image archive, will be doing the same for us in Denver and in the Twin Cities. Before we get the whole batch from her, she has agreed to send me at least a few of her best shots during each convention, which I expect to feature here this week and next.
You can learn more about this amazing woman in the December 2007 issue of the Library of Congress Information Bulletin.
