        Rubiamo ai ricchi per dare ai poveri e per divulgare il sapere gratuitamente. Per realizzare questa missione siamo entrati in possesso di una nuova tecnologia di liberazione: il bookscanner, uno strumento che consente di digitalizzare rapidamente libri di diversi formati. Il bookscanner rappresenta per i libri oggi quello che l’mp3 ha rappresentato per la musica sul finire degli anni novanta: una straordinaria opportunità di ridistribuire la cultura mediante l’utilizzo di una tecnologia diffusa e a basso costo. Abbiamo fatto nostro lo storico motto “information wants to be free” in quanto crediamo che tutte le informazioni in generale dovrebbero essere libere e che dovrebbe essere possibile poterle copiare per riadattarle ai propri scopi. Per questo come prima azione abbiamo deciso di digitalizzare e liberare una ventina di libri in uso all’interno dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara per poi ridistribuirli gratuitamente a tutti gli studenti attraverso la rete e le tecnologie peer to peer nella speranza che il nostro gesto si propaghi viralmente.

                  Initiated by Michael Korntheuer, the neighbours of Hackerspace Brussels constructed a DIY-bookscanner (Parts include a vacuum cleaner and a window wiper motor). During VJ13 the machine will be hosted in Constant Variable. It will be operated through Fonzie, a speculative software developed by Pierre Marchand, that converts physical to digital reading (searchable text, Type 1 font). The reading process of the machine can be watched, understood, read, rewritten, changed and endlessly executed. http://www.vj13.constantvzw.org/site/transmission/extended

                      Digital anthropologists Juliano Spyer and Cosimo Lupo will showcase "Homer", a book scanner constructed of everyday objects – a digital camera, a recycled box and a piece of glass from Poundland shop – powered by an open source software and a laptop. The scanned material is readable on iPad and computer as searchable PDF and text. This digital nod to the Gutenberg press will be showcased at "Whatever is to become of books?" event at the London Design Festival 2011 at the Department of Anthropology, UCL, on 17 September.
