Internet Archive Begins Backing Up Books on Paper Huh

With the move to the digital age, a person can easily figure that backups of books would mean a copy of the digital file on several hard drives.

After all, we normally hear about the shift to digitizing books -- scanning them so they're available online rather than in hard copy. But in an interesting flip, Internet Archive has decided to store one hard copy of every book ever printed in the entire world. It sounds odd, but it makes perfect sense.
