Obama’s Presidential Library should be virtual

The Boston Globe’s Mark Feeney asks, “Where would an Obama Library make most sense: Hawaii? Kansas?”

The answer, obviously, is cyberspace. As our first Web-savvy President, Barack Obama should put his Presidential Library online. If his Transparency and Open Government Initiative succeeds, most of the Library will already be built by the end of his term. Then it’s a matter of working with his brilliant Web team to design, curate, and future-proof the space.

Then instead of raising money for one library, put the funds into the public library system nationwide, so all 50 states benefit. That would be a legacy all Americans can be proud of.
