Is it possible to get a prior version?  I had AOO installed on my tablet running Jellybean.  I installed v2.0, and installation seemed to work, but trying to run it produced an "Unfortunately  AndrOpenOffice has stopped" message.  I sent a report.

I rebooted the device, and then Android thought AOO simply didn't exist and wasn't installed.  I tried to re-install from Google Play, but installation fails due to insufficient storage, when over 200MB are available.  I suspect v2.0 takes more space than the earlier version.
Do you have any idea of how much storage is required for a successful install?

Meanwhile, the prior version worked and I'd like to revert to it, but that doesn't seem to be an option on Google Play.  If there's another place to get prior versions, I'd be grateful.

Thanks!

Thank you.  I was unable to install AOO 1.54 from your link.  Once again, it claimed "Insufficient Storage", and I have 247MB free.  I have no idea what is going on.  Versions before 2.0 successfully installed and upgraded in less space.  Is there a difference between the stand alone apk on your Google Drive and the version available via the Play Store?

I'll keep an eye on AOO, and will try again in future releases, but unless I wipe and redo my tablet from scratch, it appears I can't install and run it now.

Thank you for your help thus far.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac:
Turning the American Dream into a Nightmare

The collapse of the real estate market in 2008 and the subsequent recession it triggered got enormous attention, with bankers taking most of the heat.  What's less understood is that the problems had roots in government policies intended to provide housing for those normally excluded from home ownership.  This online release of a previously published book examines the policies and government agencies involved in carrying them out.

Augmenting Human Intellect:
A Conceptual Framework

A research paper written in 1962 by Douglas Engelbart, on ways to enhance human intellect.  It was prepared for the Director of Information Sciences, Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

By "augmenting human intellect" we mean increasing the capability of a man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his particular needs, and to derive solutions to problems.

Engelbert's work at SRI International led to the development of the computer mouse, hypertext, and networks.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Engelbart)

The Mewar Ramayana
A digital reunification

The Ramayana is India's oldest and best known tale, originally composed told in the Sanskrit epic poem of Valmiki some two and a half thousand years ago:

The Mewar Ramayana was prepared in the 17th century.  Parts of it were in the British Museum, and others were still in India.  With over 450 paintings, it is the most complete and elaborate illustrated manuscript of the Ramayana known.  A joint effort of the British Museum and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya in Mumbai has digitized the work, and made it available to all.

The Vignelli Canon

Lars Müller Publishers issued The Vignelli Canon, a book by iconic Italian designer Massimo Vignelli, where he laid out his principles of design.  In 2009, Vignelli made it available as a free download in PDF form from his website.

Vignelli has had a long and vibrant career, whose work includes a corporate identity program for American Airlines and a map of the New York City subway system.  (A personal favorite of mine is his work as Art Director for Skyline, a magazine once published by the American Institute of Architects, where Vignelli demonstrated what could be done in a tabloid format.)

Abbot Suger and St. Denis
A symposium edited by Paula Gerson Lieber

Saint Denis was one of the most important churches in medieval France, and Abbot Suger was one of the most important churchmen.  In 1137, he decided to rebuild the Church of St. Denis, which was the burial ground of French monarchs.  His patronage of the arts during the process led directly to the development of the Gothic style of architecture.

In 1986, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City published a symposium on Suger's contributions to architecture, distributed through art publisher Harry N. Abrams.  It's now available for download in PDF form.

The Geography of Transport Systems

An online version of Hofstra University Professor Jean-Paul Rodrigue's textbook on the relationship between transportation systems and geography.

Mobility is fundamental to economic and social activities such as commuting, manufacturing, or supplying energy. Each movement has an origin, a potential set of intermediate locations, a destination, and a nature which is linked with geographical attributes. Transport systems composed of infrastructures, modes and terminals are so embedded in the socio-economic life of individuals, institutions and corporations that they are often invisible to the consumer. This is paradoxical as the perceived invisibility of transportation is derived from its efficiency. Understanding how mobility is linked with geography is main the purpose of this textbook.
