Saw this news bit and thought it was interesting...

Imagine being so close to Botticelli's Venus that you can see the
strands of her blond hair, the shades of pink in her cheeks, the cracks
in the centuries-old paint.

                That sensation is now just a click away.
week, an Italian company put online high-resolution images of "The
Birth of Venus" and five other masterpieces from the Uffizi gallery in
Florence, including works by Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci.
zooming in with the click of a mouse, the smallest details can appear —
even ones that aren't typically visible when viewing artworks at the
distances required by museums for security.

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime and he doesn't have to just eat fish. :)
