Readers of Slashdot asked Carl Malamud about his experiences and hopes in his project to prod the U.S. government into scanning archived documents. They asked questions about metadata, digitizing rare books, what he thinks about corporate partnerships in the process to get public data released, other projects like Ancestry.com and PACER, and even “Which government agency is the worst to get information from?”
Malamud’s answers are posted at the link below “with a mix of heartening and disheartening information about how the vast project is progressing.”
