One Man Digitizing Millions of Newspaper Pages

To show how much more efficient the market is than the government, one-man operation Tom Tryniski has vastly outperformed and underspent the government attempt to digitize newspapers in America.

For example, while the government languishes in its effort to offer the Brooklyn Daily Eagle online, Tryniski already has the entire 115-year history digitized on his Fulton History website and ready to search.

Overall, Tryniski, who is working on digitizing New York state newspapers, gets 6 million page views on the 22 million pages offered on his website.

The excellent video of Tryniski and his efforts is shown below.

Think of how much the government wastes in comparison to Tryniski, who does it as a labor of love
for others.
