The DataTank is an open source tool that publishes data. These data can be stored in text based files such as CSV, XML and JSON or in binary structures such as SHP files and relational databases. The DataTank will read the data out of these structures and publish them on the web using a URI as an identifier. It can then provide these data in any format a user wants, no matter what the original datastructure was. In practical terms, this means that you can provide a JSON feed on a certain URI based on data somewhere on the web say, a CSV output from a google spreadsheet.

FromThePage is free software that allows volunteers to transcribe handwritten documents on-line. It's easy to index and annotate subjects within a text using a simple, wiki-like mark-up. Users can discuss difficult writing or obscure words within a page to refine their transcription. The resulting text is hosted on the web, making documents easy to read and search.
