Git-Lit Puts The British Library on GitHub

Wow: I just heard about Git-Lit. “Git-Lit aims to parse, version control, and post each work in the British Library’s corpus of digital texts. Parsing the texts will transform the machine-readable metadata into human-readable prefatory material; version controlling the texts will allow for collaborative editing and revision of the texts, effectively crowdsourcing the correction of OCR errors; and posting the texts to GitHub will ensure the texts’ visibility to the greater community.”
