Transcribing history

The project that I had decided to do was AnnoTate, one of the many Zooniverse projects. In this project, I transcribed archived personal papers and documents in order to make reading such documents much easier for the scientists studying them. While browsing through the projects presented by Zooniverse, AnnoTate stood out among others, for it was a project that benefitted social and linguistic anthropology, a field of science that has not been much heard of in the current generation; anthropology is a science that I was not interested in until after I finished this project. After finishing the project, I felt all sorts of emotions from all of the different documents and papers, especially the sad ones, I had read and enjoyed it.
