A recent Universal Library project is to have every Church in North America, and later the world, put up their weekly church bulletins on the web. This requires seeking methods of enhancing bulletin information value by marking up the bulletins for useful search. We have over 43,000 churches with editors now, but this is only 15% of the way.
A development of the Houses of Worship project has been a fully implemented

LOS ANGELES -- (Associated Press 1973) -- Vladimir Zworykin, who invented the television picture tube 50 years ago, says his favorite part of a TV set is the switch.
Zworykin, who was 85 yesterday, deplores the number of crime and murder stories on TV.
"When broadcasting began to develop, I hoped TV would be used for educational purposes, especially so that different cultures could learn to understand each other. Instead, most of the times when I turn on the TV -- bang, bang, bang." Zworykin said during a pre-birthday celebration at a local restaurant Monday night.
He lists wildlife shows, political debates, and news programs as his favorite TV fare.
The Russian-born inventor was working at Westinghouse Laboratories when he demonstrated the first workable TV model in 1923.
"When the head of Westinghouse saw the first TV he said, 'Put that guy to work on something more profitable," Zworykin recalled.
