Meditation 1.28.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
I found an amazing service project I may start participating in.
A website called Old Weather is currently transcribing old whaling captain's logs to gather the weather information from the 19th and 20th centuries. This is requiring human volunteers, as computers are not yet able to accurately transcribe the written text.
The project sounds fascinating, and not just for the weather information. The history to be gleaned from these pages has me intrigued.
I have been looking for service projects and transcribing data is something I can do from home. This sounds like a great historical preservation project. What do you think?
