Possibly it might even be undertaken as an effort
by more than a single individual. In any case,
there ought to be a democratic "referendum", which
is why I'm posting it to our list.
Definitely more than a single individual - even
with scanners there's a lot of work - especially
if the font of the article is not in the modern
font inventory (I think SftP used Times Roman,
so it's probably not a problem.)
It would be a good project for a "History of Science"
course ... students could use articles for starting
Or for those of use with access to a scanner.
Which, I guess is a way of volunteering to take
responsibility for a year or two of articles.
(6 issues x 32 pages = 200 pages to scan or so)
I can also offer disk space for some time.
What would be good is some sort of "editorial"
group - not so much to "edit" but to verify
scanning and possibly provide the additional
meta-tag markup which could turn this into a
nice electronic collection. (A good project for
folks in a history of science program somewhere.)
A project like this doesn't need a referendum
as much as it needs volunteers. As Jon pointed
out, we're not an organization, so concepts
like voting, etc, are .... difficult to deal
