Microsoft Teams With Library of Congress


Posted January 14, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Microsoft is teaming up with the Library of Congress to encode and digitize our nation's history.

In April, you'll be able to point your browse-machine to Myloc.gov and there you will thrill to interactive galleries that allow you to view and sometimes "interact with" a rough draft of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the Gutenberg Bible and a 1507 map that first used the word "America."

Please do not hack into the Constitution and remove the third amendment. That's the one that reads:  No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

I'm sick of soldiers stopping by and being like, "Sjohnson, can we stay in your spot? Please???" No, dude. You can't.
