I'm totally conflicted on this since I recently did some serious research into book scanners with the aim of getting DG&R into a searchable database for my own use. The conclusion was the hardware is way too expensive. The concept killer for me though was that OCR software still has a long way to go. I'm not crazy enough to open the book at page 1 and start typing.

I mean, where's the reward that might motivate the sheer work that goes into running down and compiling such information in the first place?
Doing a DGR database would be made a lot easier if a digital version of the disco text could be obtained, although it would still have to be imported into the DB program. Such a digital version must exist somewhere...
The future of these things must lie in wikis or wiki-like media.
