I'm helping digitize books!

You could too.

    Almost a year ago (mid 2010) I had to shut down my comment page.
    The reason was spam. Lots of spam. Let's say about 5 per hour, every hour, all day.
    Cialis, Viagra, insurance, blah, blah, blah....
    In order to stop it, I needed to do something creative. I searched and queried friends and came up with a captcha as a top viable candidate. But which one and what would it cost?
    I did more investigation and came upon reCAPTCHA by Google.

    So now I'm spam free, for free. And in the meantime I'm helping take older books, newspapers, and more and digitizing them for preservation and easier access!
