Transcribe Bentham has launched!
By uczwvhw, on 7 September 2010
The Transcribe Bentham crowdsourcing initiative officially launched today. Our Transcription Desk is now open to the public and we encourage everyone to have a go at transcribing Jeremy Bentham’s papers! We welcome all contributions and all thoughts on anything relating to Bentham and the project in general. You are warmly encouraged to explore the site, create a profile and post comments on our discussion board. Tell us about your favourite Bentham quote or invented word! Gain points for your contributions to move up our progress ladder and become a transcribing prodigy! Track the progress of transcription by viewing the Benthamometer.
This is the first major crowdsourcing transcription project, from which we will learn much about the nature of community engagement and social media. We will share these results with you in the near future. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the site!
