The Diacritic Archive

Okay, it's not really an archive. It's just my obsession with books, which has just reached a new level of geekdom. I paid some pretty pennies for a bar scanner, which hooks into my linux netbook running a library application called Alexandria. I can scan the ISBN bar codes of the books into the program and it sucks thumbnails and info from databases such as Amazon. It's sweet. So sweet I spent six hours bar scanning the stacks. The collection focuses on art, design, architecture, some literature. Two days later, I invited students from my Concept Development class for a meeting at the house and officially launched my lifelong dream: to own a library.

If you have to ask, porn is filed under art...

And for the finishing touch, collection stickers are being printed. RFID tags when I become a millionaire...
