LibriVox Wows Open Library crowd

I reported earlier on the LibriVox involvement in the launch of the Open Library, and promised an audio clip. So here it is. This is Brewster Kahle, founder of the Internet Archive (where LibriVox hosts audio files), the big force behind the OpenLibrary project. Here he is showing off — to a crowd of 600 silicon valley movers/shakers, + a bunch of librarians and interested public — the beautiful Open Library interface for An International Episode, and then he demonstrates the audio, produced by LibriVox. Have a listen to what happens (sorry about the quality of the recording):
