Measuring the ANZACs

I thought this was a very slick and comprehensive website. Not only was it very easy to follow the directions for marking and transcribing these historical documents, I thought it was also very ascetically pleasing, and almost enjoyable to go through marking up the documents. This and the fact that the documents in front of me were directly connected to a time in history, drew me in and kept me engaged with the site, which seems to be the whole idea of the project. Since it was so easy and engaging, I found myself wanting to transcribe more and more documents while the owners of this site just sat back and watched as I did their work for them. Overall I thought this was a genius idea and a very well done DH project.
