Librivox evolves...

Librivox is a project where volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain and release the audio files back onto the net. Their goal is to make all public domain literature available as free audio books. It is a volunteer-run, open source, free content, public domain project.

It is a worthy aim, although some of the readers' voices make Steven Hawking sound interesting. However, their latest project is ambitious enough to warrant a mention... they've just released Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species (by means of natural selection). All 24 hours 30 minutes of it! (cue comments about major evolutionary shifts occurring while listening to it).
