The Writings on the Stall

Saturday, 2004-04-10

when i'm bored there'll always be pgdp

Henceforth, when I catch myself doing nothing at my computer — happens all the time — I'm going to head to Project Gutenberg's Distributed Proofreaders (PGDP). And start proofreading:

This site provides a web-based method of easing the proofreading work associated with the digitization of Public Domain books into Project Gutenberg e-books. By breaking the work into individual pages many proofreaders can be working on the same book at the same time. This significantly speeds up the proofreading/e-book creation process.

This will provide a great chance to volunteer for people like me (who always say they want to, but never do). As a plus, the project may boost my interest in books that I'd never have came across otherwise.
