Also out loud, the non-exclusivity of the program is what is most attractive
in Ancestry.com's proposed contract. Footnote and everybody else can also do
exactly the same thing. The impact is neutral with one added benefit - it
gets the materials digitized more rapidly.

The value of digitizing more records is evident to historians and
genealogists. Since NARA has also partnered with Footnote.com to do the same
type of work on other NARA record groups, with splendid results, my
-- Isn't Footnote.com a better venue for our access to additional NARA
record groups than Ancestry.com?
-- Isn't Footnote's corporate policy a little easier to take than
-- Isn't Footnote's interface easier to navigate?
Maybe NARA feedback might applaud the digitization but recommend increasing
the scope of the partnership with a company you prefer.
Just thinking out loud here.
