GNE Transcription Project

This page is a central place for the GNE (logs) Transcription Project which has started as a community based project and a proposal on how to “ground the GNE and bring it down into an artefactual form that would survive regardless of Archontic systems of reproduction and communication.” – JLL, NB 92

(At YouTube you can listen to the audio excerpt from the Nav Briefing 92, “Passage of Command,” in which John had specifically envisioned how materialization of the GNE would look like.)

You can view the work in progress at Navigator Briefings Dashboard.

If you would like to join us in the transcription process, you can simply get started by following the instructions laid out at Transcription introduction section in our help document, and registering your interest via (please be absolutely sure to contact us before you start doing anything, otherwise we will end up with duplicated effort).

We aim to have all GNE files finished in their first draft state by July 2015 and from there we can start indexing and compiling the volumes. It will be a great way to gather some skills and commune with other members of the crew who are on the transcription team. There is no commitment required, people can contribute what they want. Ideally we have a team of around 10-15 people transcribing one GNE file per month (6-8 hours work) and we should reach our target.

Hope to hear from you.

NB files in the GNE logs file repository are saved mostly in the OpenDocument file format, and according to Wikipedia there is a huge amount of applications that support specified format. In case you don’t have any of the listed word processors installed on your computer (e.g., Microsoft Office 2007 or newer), our recommendation is LibreOffice — free and open source office suite that can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
