Sometimes the crawler on CNN actually shows something interesting.  The other day, while channel-surfing, I came across a reference to Scribd, a website created in 2007, dedicated to document sharing, whether it be the manual for your lawnmower, various e-books, or your own creative writing.  Users can both download and upload written material, akin to Youtube, and browse to their heart’s content. 

Scribd has a sharp looking homepage with a little search engine, and a variety of listings to narrow down your searches.  Looks like someone has given the Gutenberg project a run for their money!
