At Archie Grand we believe that there is a lot of knowledge that most people miss.This lost knowledge is the information that is not stored on the web. Millions of old books, pamphlets guides, instructions or diaries are not scanned and digitalized.
With EDUCATION HOUR we will ask people to spend one hour to gain knowledge from a source that is not the internet. And then record something of what they learnt and share that with the rest of us.
This year we plan to have EDUCATION HOUR on the 17th of October.
The web is a fragile place, digital information is easy to loose. Our society could loose its history in a great solar flare. Paper or pergament or clay tablets, stand the test of time. Our project is to collect your web page, print it on paper and put it into a safe archive for future historians to use.
What we need from you, is a screen shoot of your page and if you like you can supply information why and who have made the page. email it to US at archie at archiegrand dot com
