We Get Press!

Crowdsourced transcription projects--and FromThePage in particular--have gotten some really nice press in the last few weeks.

Konrad Lawson posted an excellent review of Scripto and FromThePage on the ProfHacker blog at The Chronicle of Higher Education: Crowdsourcing Transcription: FromThePage and Scripto.

Francine Diep wrote a great article on the phenomenon at Innovation News Daily: Volunteer Transcribers Put Millions of Pages Online.

Ellen Davis's article on Southwestern's transcription of Zenas Matthews's 1846 Mexican War Diary is especially notable because it includes an interview with Scott Patrick, the volunteer who has done such a spectacular job: Collaborative Transcription Project.
