Digitization Factory

On NGC4Lib, William Denton posted:
"I must add that I had a tour of the Internet Archive's book digitization factory at the University of Toronto a couple of weeks ago, and it was incredible, a crazy futuristic man-machine hybrid churning out 1300 books and five terabytes of data a week. Thirteen digitizing stations are in use 14 hours a day."

Made me smile. Here is a stream of books coming onto the web entirely outside the reach of commerce. Thankyou thankyou.

On the other hand, there's still this small matter which is yet to be resolved! :(
