Wikisource: Edmund Husserl Scan Party

I was looking at some wikithings. I found Wikisource, which, from what I can gather, is an online database of public domain texts. Public Domain in the US is confusingly defined here. For a more practical breakdown, look here.

If you’ve read around Wikisource, you will find that one way to help out is to throw a Scan party.

To celebrate works by a particular person which are entering the public domain, you get a bunch of people together and enter their texts into Wikisource.

I propose Edmund Husserl, the German thinker who died on April 26, 1938.

Edmund Husserl heavily influenced Martin Heidegger, who wrote Being and Time which, in turn, heavily influenced Jerzy Kosinski, who then wrote Being There, which was then turned into a film of the same name by Hal Ashby, which starred Peter Sellers, who is my favorite actor and who I will be portraying for Halloween.

So, Husserl scan party on April 26th, 2008.
