93106, the weekly faculty/staff newspaper at UCSB has an interesting article about the UCSB based 'Writings of Henry D. Thoreau Project'. They have just completed a project to read and transcribe each of the approximately two million words in the forty-seven manuscript volumes of the Thoreau's Journal.
