- Distributed Proofreaders: DP proofs e-books for Project Gutenberg. That is, the volunteers take scanned images of pages from eligible books, run them through a program that creates text files, compare the text to the scan to check for mistakes, and format the proofread pages into an e-book. (That's simplified, but that's the gist of it.) It's easy, it's fun, and it's satisfying; come join us!
