Has anyone explored the idea of an open lending library for the net? My definition of open library is:
- Infrastructure to authorize for a short period (7days or whatever)
- Infrastructure for people to buy and donate book copies to the library
- Infrastructure for people to register by contributing X books per year or for a nominal fee.
Over a period of time, there will be lots and lots of copies of any given book (hopefully
).. People from all over the world can benefit.
Now, am I not nuts?
