Tuesday, November 19, is #TheGettysburgAddress@150. What if we organized public readings of the address? If we had a Google Mashup, which people could use to claim a corner, we could encourage as many simultaneous readings across the country as possible. The idea would be that at, say, 12:15pm, across as many corners as possible, the Address would be read by as many people as possible.

For those words, uttered seven-score and ten years ago, are increasingly relevant today.
