FYI #001: How we'll digitally archive newspapers and make Nigerian history digitally available to anyone, anywhere.
This would actually be an amazing startup. Especially if you could scale this to every company in the world. I would legit pay a > $50 for a digital database of newspapers over the last 50 years OCRs and searchable. Are you sure you shouldn't be doing this as a startup rather than as an NGO or charity. Let me know if you want to talk about building this into a self sustaining business.
