  • Copyright scams and account violation scams are a growing problem on FB and Instagram. Here’s how you can avoid falling for them.
  • With only 232 copies known to exist, Shakespeare’s First Folio has a surprisingly colorful history of being stolen.
  • The Guardian just published an article about the British Library’s effort to preserve web and other digital content.
