He is arguably not only the father of Project Gutenberg but of the entire effort to protect and expand the Creative Commons including FOSS. You will have to ask Stallman if he was influenced by Hart in founding GNU, but there can be little doubt but that he was inspired.  RIP

 

PS Don;t forget Vox Libre, free open source talking books read by voluteers.

This man... Is a hero to us book lovers. I do not know why we are still using those ancient scrolls called paperbacks. Embrace the digital revolution, and save your environment as a bonus.

Project Gutenberg is amazing. Too bad schools and colleges don't push that for literary classes
