Project Gutenberg is a non-profit organization that maintains an online archive of a large number of freely available books. For example, the many classics that now are in the public domain. Distributed Proofreaders is a project that supports Project Gutenberg by spreading out the work of proofreading the texts that are on their way into the archive. The work gets farmed out to many online volunteers who will receive pages that have been scanned, and send them back with corrections. Charles Franks, the originator of the effort, asks for as many people as possible to commit to doing a page a day. Look at the graph on the page. He put out his request for more people on SlashDot two days ago, and now the number of volunteers are skyrocketing.

Wonderful blog! I relaly relaly like the way it's easy on my eyes and the data is very well created. I'm curious the simplest way I could possibly be advised every time a brand new blog post was produced?

Sir, you are a gentleman. Because of your siroinety, you brought manners, experience and politeness to PMQs, but unfortunatly these qualities appear to be wrong for todays Britain. I write as a 67 year old, just to thank-you for trying, on my behalf, to promote the cause of Liberalism. You will make much better use of your time I'm sure. Leave the bear-pit to the bears. It's no wonder that the country is full off cynics, when one observes the happenings of the last few days, and politics in general.
