I wish handwriting could have accents the way spoken language does. I want to read southern handwriting and then I want to read handwriting with an English accent.
Has anyone else seen this? It’s brilliant
People on youtube are fucking idiots though. Apparently there are people that either a, think this is a green screen, or b, actually believe that this guy bought a go pro and travelled the world literally to just take selfies to make a YouTube video out of and get himself famous. Apparently people don’t know that there are places to go and people to meet and things to achieve away from being a giant shitdick on the internet.

There are 3 parts to the campaign:
- Completely transcribe and review Baird’s Index of Correspondence
- Upon completion of Baird’s Index, you’ll UNLOCK the diary of one of Baird’s correspondents. Who will it be? Watch this space (and Twitter & Facebook) for more details. With these projects, you’ll have a window into how the Smithsonian’s early professional social network was established, using telegraph and scientific observations from around the world.
- Connect with us here at the Smithsonian via a Google+ Hangout on Air (like this one) to get behind-the-scenes knowledge about Baird from Pam Henson, the director of the Institutional History Division of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.
Here’s the catch: you only have 2 weeks! If you contribute to help push the Index to completion, you will get a special invitation to participate in the behind-the-scenes webcast. Otherwise, you’ll miss out on a fantastic opportunity to learn about Baird and early Smithsonian history from the esteemed and entertaining Pam Henson, the director of the Institutional History Division of the Smithsonian Institution Archives!
Aw yeah! We <3 Baird. He donated his personal library to establish the U.S. National Museum (USNM) Library (now the National Museum of Natural History Library.)
Plus, impressive facial hair.
