The Ny Times open archive and Amazon Mechanical Turk

I am sure everyone has heard the news that the Ny Times has opened up their archive. However, while following a link to Custer’s Last Stand only part of the article is reproduced. To view the full article you have to read the scanned PDF version (yuck). I bet they would increase their traffic ten fold if they were able to translate all there scanned articles. Sounds like a great job for Amazon Mechanical Turk.
