Open Library surfaces

The Open Library, a giant catalog of books/wiki/library discovery tool has gone public. Take a look at the demo. Very cool. This could be the open window on every librarian's desktop, and a significant win for openness and for our shared cultural infrastructure.

Why does everyone assume a book on a screen is far more desirable than the real thing?

This is a great resource, but it really belongs on the desktops of students!
