El Proyecto Septiembre

Silver in sf talks about The September Project, and collaborating with bibliotecas in Mexico and Peru. I’m excited to read more. Maria Garrido, from my alma mater, seems like someone to watch as well. The Center for Internet Studies does interesting work.

I do wonder, however, what the perception of this project would be for libraries outside the U.S. Linking it to 9/11 at all, and expecting other countries to weigh the impact equally to our assessment of the that event in shaping global history/politics appears to be somewhat U.S.-centric. I know that 9/11 did have global implications, but to people worldwide see this point in time as a global tipping point? Maybe they do. Hard for me to say from the U.S.

Of course, I’m being persnickety.  Initiating civic engagement on any day is a good thing.
