Sports Technology – Opening Pandora’s box

Pandora_Archive_-_Preserving_and_Accessing_Networked_DOcumentary_Resources_of_AustraliaWe came across Australia’s Pandoras box recently, turns out its an archive of Australian publications for the future. what a neat idea!

Its an initiative of the National Library of Australia, and sports technology gets a mention too, so when this blog goes the way of the Dodo you’ll still be able to find us at http://nla.gov.au/nla.arc-148161 

Privately we wonder if each article now counts as a publication at University performance review time 😉

Heres more on Pandora’s mission (from http://pandora.nla.gov.au/about.html )
