Einstein Archives Going Online

We live in a glorious age in which the internet brings a seemingly infinite amount of knowledge right to our fingertips. Granted, it also brings Farmville and unspeakable subgenres of pornography to our fingertips, but let’s focus on the positive. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which has been the curator of all of Albert Einstein‘s various writings, is going to putting all of Einstein’s work online over the next few years.

One of the most brilliant minds of our time, Einstein died almost sixty years ago, but his legacy is as strong as ever and will only get stronger once his work becomes easily accessible. Einstein’s notes, diaries, correspondence, and writings of all kinds will soon be available online in the form of high-resolution images, including his original manuscript outlining his theory of relativity. I have no doubt that every bit of his work will go right over my head, but even I can’t contain my excitement.
