DynaSoar writes "According to a Wired article http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2009/06/nasadata-2/ NASA is soliciting ideas from the public on how best to catalog and digitize the collected notes of Werner von Braun. "We're looking for creative ways to get it out to the public," said project manager Jason Crusan. "We don't always do the best with putting out large sets of data like this." The notes http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/363387main_von_Braun_notes_RFI_Appendix_1.pdf [pdf] are those of rocket scientist Wernher von Braun, the fist director of NASA's Marshall Spaceflight Center in Huntsville, Alabama and are typed with copious hand written notes in the margin. According to the official request for information http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/363386main_von_Braun_notes_RFI.pdf [pdf], NASA needs ideas on what format to use, how to index the notes and how to create a useful database. The unique nature and historical value of the data, literally discovered in boxes six months ago, is what motivated NASA to ask the public for ideas."
