Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Charles Darwin's works go online
Charle's Darwin's entire life's work is about to go online.

If that's not proof of evolution, adaptation, innovation and that the internet is the most important invention of the latter part of the 20th century, I don't know what is.
There is no charge to use the website. Most texts can be viewed either as colour originals or as fully formatted electronic transcriptions. There are also German, Danish and Russian editions.

Users can also peruse more than 150 supplementary texts, ranging from reference works to contemporary reviews of Darwin's books, obituaries and recollections.

At the moment the site contains about 50% of the materials that will be provided by 2009, the bicentenary of the naturalist's birth.
