What is Open Culture’s Mission?

Open Culture brings together high-quality cultural & educational media for the worldwide lifelong learning community. Web 2.0 has given us great amounts of intelligent audio and video. It’s all free. It’s all enriching. But it’s also scattered across the web, and not easy to find. Our whole mission is to centralize this content, curate it, and give you access to this high quality content whenever and wherever you want it. Free audio books, free online courses, free movies, free language lessons, free ebooks and other enriching content — it’s all here. Open Culture was founded in 2006.

I have my main Library on scribd dor com (link here) with some 80K reads which is very satisfying. Not all mine of course but some have good readership. I cannot upload copyright material so I’ve found out of print classics. I have authored a briefing on cyberculture which has been read by a few. More of that later. Always looking for helpers:
