The Library of Alexandria was a library designed in ancient times (200 BC) to create a store of universal human knowledge and understanding. The Library was quite impressive in the first hundreds of years of existence, but much like our own internet, suffered from mismanagement and experienced a loss of knowledge over time.
We want to build up the permanent library of human culture and knowledge on Arweave's permaweb. Public Drives offer collections of free content for future generations, like digital time capsules of important files that will exist forever.
More than 2000 Public Drives have already been created on ArDrive on topics from books to movies to history. We've launched this Public Drive Bounty to accelerate the growth of useful, royalty-free content on the permaweb.
