Michael Hart passed away in September 2011. The Economist in its obituary for him, noted that on the night of the American Independence Day in 1971, Hart, a student at University of Illinois in Urbana, began typing out the American Declaration of Independence on a computer. He then sent a link to friends saying they could download it for free.

Eventually, this voluntary act led to more books being written out, and more volunteers joining what could now be termed a project. What appropriate name did Hart give to this project?
