Dear Annotation Aficionados, 

I am involved with FinalsClub.org, a non-profit open education project for college students to share their knowledge freely with the world.  In addition to note-sharing, the project also had an annotation component from 2007 to 2009.  During that time, we hired about a dozen Harvard PhDs to annotate public domain works of literature, including ten Shakespeare plays.

Unfortunately, our old site is down and those annotations are not publicly visible.  I have, however, attached the xml file for Romeo and Juliet with about 500 annotations.  If anyone is interested in helping us resurrect about 90 public domain texts with some 9000+ high quality annotations, we would very much like the help.

Given that all of our content is creative commons attribution only, we're glad to share it with proper attribution to finalsclub.  I'd also love to get the annotate software running on our servers so our community of scholars can start adding more value to these classic texts.  There is, however, no urgency to the matter.  

Please do let me know if you're interested in helping.  Thanks in advance!

Looking forward,
Andrew Magliozzi
Founder, FinalsClub.org
