Pretty neat - Storing e-text for centuries via Tomalak's Realm
Rather than invent a better mousetrap, they are using existing technology to imitate an important function of libraries. They want to ensure that readers will still be able to access electronic academic journals even centuries after they have been published.

Another neat use of open-source technology, and an example of how difficult it is to move from free to not-profit status for a technology.
