“Where Rolls The Kern, A History Of Kern County” by Herbert G. Comfort--1934 “History should not overstep the limits of truth, and indeed, in recording noble deeds, the truth... More > is sufficient.” “County Histories as a class quite generally possess two outstanding characteristics. They are very often written by “one of the oldest inhabitants who remembers when;” and, all too frequently, in the opinion of this writer at least, from one-half to three-quarters of their total space is given over to biographies and “write-ups” of the county’s “prominent citizens” of today, whose chief claim to recognition in all too many cases is that they have subscribed in advance for one or more copies of the volume, at rather a round figure, or have otherwise contributed financially to the support of the work.”< Less

At the same time, colonists were encouraged to travel to North America, that Britain’s holdings be expanded and the new continent’s wealth be enjoyed by the settlers and the wider Empire. Second only to the Puritans in number, many Quakers departed England after suffering persecution – eager for a fresh start, thousands acted to bolster the settlements of Philadelphia, New Jersey and smaller towns on the Delaware river.

Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
