Wasted

I can't believe I've done this again! A whole night squandered on teh Internets, and nothing worthwhile accomplished! Well, not absolutely nothing, I guess. I discovered that the USC digital archive has been greatly expanded, and its historic photograph collection (which has some really great stuff that can't be found anywhere else) now comes with more egregious errors than ever! Streets given the wrong names, north, south, east and west conflated, names misspelled, years gotten wrong, buildings misidentified... on and on. I now have a compulsion to fix everything there, but I've tried that before, when the collection was much smaller, and gotten no response from them. Now there's more than ever to irritate me! Sometimes I really, really, really hate academic institutions.

I also found that the University of California's California Digital Library has been getting bigger. Just what I need, another University web site to piss me off.

Damn, look at the time!
