I want to include a section on The Public Domain Review which helps people
who may want to get involved in contributing to the cultural commons - I am
thinking of things like Transcription, tagging, other crowd-sourced
I have these 3 from a email Sam sent:
The Transcribe Bentham Project - http://blogs.ucl.ac.uk/transcribe-bentham/
Distributed Proofreaders (who help to transcribe a lot of Gutenberg's
books) - http://www.pgdp.net/c/
Old Weather, crowdsourcing the weather of the past using ships logs from
150 years ago - http://www.oldweather.org/
And I guess also there is helping out with Wikimedia Commons, e.g.:
Any others that you can think of please let me know!
Thanks a lot,
