Progress update, 19 to 25 October 2013

By Tim Causer, on 25 October 2013

Welcome along to the progress update for the period 19 to 25 October 2013, during which time further steady progress has been made by Transcribe Bentham volunteers. During the last week, 7,189 words of Bentham text have been transcribed, along with a further 3,035 words of TEI XML.

6,400 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 23 on last week’s total. Of these transcripts, 6,100 (95%) are now complete and been locked, up 38 on this time last week.

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

We had an excellent meeting with students on UCL’s Centre for Publishing MA course this week, who will be producing a Bentham cookbook based on the panopticon recipes uncovered by TB transcribers. We’re looking forward to this, and are sure that the results will look much better than our attempts at Bentham’s baked apple pudding.
