Amanuensis Takes a Holiday

Amanuensis: A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

As I did in 2009 and 2010, in honor of Labor Day, I am taking a holiday from my project to transcribe family letters, journals, newspaper articles, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts.

I began this project back in February of 2009, and since then, many others have joined in on the meme.  Why do we transcribe?  I provide my three reasons in the linked post.  You may find others.  If you participate, feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments.
