Some time ago I discussed the idea of the Human Library and how it is something geeks should join and duplicate. Little did I know someone had had a similar idea – only taking it digital.
That’s when I found the Digital Human Library. It’s not affiliated with the Human Library, but it’s just as awesome.
Founded in Canada, the Digital Human library is an education tool (currently for k-12 teachers and students). The idea is to have people easily available to chat digitally in video conference, Skype, and other technology. Think of it as a kind of virtual field trip or easy way to get a speaker no matter the distance.
