The BookScan 800 has a list price of $89,000. Is comparable in price and technology to the Scribe machine developed by Brewster Kahle? (Or maybe the question should be is it lower in price yet with better technology?) [Actually the rumor is that the Scribe is lower in price and lower in quality, but that is just the rumor. I'd like to hear from someone who has a Scribe machine OR hear from Brewster Kahle -- or a rep -- about the machine.]
This is all very interesting...
