TEXTFILES.COM Call for Interns —
Well, here we go.
I’m trying to clear out a bunch of backburnered projects this year. Some of them involve scanning, some involve sorting, and others involve cataloging. They’re all in that “getting this time-consuming process finished” realm, which doesn’t necessarily need me, in the personal sense, doing all the tasks.
Here’s an example: I have 200+ shareware CD-ROMs that need to be scanned, cataloged, and ISOs pulled from them, as part of a project with the Computer History Museum. It will also improve cd.textfiles.com, since I can fix up the entries in the directories with CD scans, as well as verifying the information.
There are one of a kind artifacts I’m scanning, thousands of pages. I can’t spend all day doing it right now, and I don’t know when.
I have items that need transcription, OCRd documents proofread, and a way to pull in a lot of printed BBS information.
I can’t pay anything. I can supply drinks and food. The house has a nice chill-out space.
So there we go. I am asking for help. Any ideas?

You forgot to mention that the house also has a Sockington and a Pennycat. That’s a big plus! 🙂
This would be at your house, I assume? Being that you say “The house”…
So, locals only, no remote? Summer only?
How about a barn-raising week, for people who wanted to travel? (Not saying that I could, personally.)
I like the barn raising idea.
If there’s remote work to be done, I would gladly participate.
Yah. If it’s remote, I’m happy to help.
Too bad about the no food and housing. I would have liked a longish American vacation 😉
If there’s any way I can help from my remote location, let me know. (And would donations of $ instead of time be helpful at all?…)
It might be more productive to get one or two interns at the house to make dupes of the CDs, and send those out to remote volunteers.
If you’re looking for someone in the area send me an email. I should be available for the summer. Let me know.
If remote volunteers are needed I am available to help.
