Distributed Proofreaders Complete 5,000th E-Book

The Distributed Proofreaders project, an anthill community organized to help add new public domain texts to the Project Gutenberg library of e-books, has completed its 5,000th proof: John W. Cousin’s A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature. That’s a tremendous volume of new e-books created since DP was launched just four years ago! Congratulations to the whole team.

Obligatory Disclaimer

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
