For those of us in South Florida who would like to volunteer to help with oil spill, I've finally gotten my hands on some good info!
The Broward Sheriff's Office will soon be offering training in oil clean up.
The free four-hour classes will be held over five days at The B.S.O. Public Safety Complex at 2601 W. Broward Blvd. Call 954-926-2400 or check their website for more info.
Also, MoveOn.Org provided me with a general volunteer training information number. If you're interested in training or have questions call 1-866-448-5816. Read more about Florida Oil Spill Volunteer Info!

I think the political benefit of such an arrangement is that in the future, most "libraries" will be corporate for profit access havens.

A fun project would be for someone to go over Google's material, while comparing it with old school microfiche of the same material.
