Obama's Presidential Library Belongs in the Cloud

What if the first truly digital president were to have the first truly digital presidential library?

Today's patriotic controversy, appropriately enough given the holiday, concerns presidential libraries. Specifically, the location for the one that will be built for Barack Obama once he leaves office.

Late last month, a foundation was created to oversee the whole enterprise; the hope is to select a home for the library by early 2015. "Our mission is to build a library that tells President Obama's remarkable story in an interactive way that will inspire future generations to become involved in public service," says Marty Nesbitt, an Obama pal and one of the appointed site diviners.
