Here’s a cool open-source Web site called DocStoc that allows users to upload and share any document. I’ve uploaded a PDF of the salary and travel expenses at my college (all public records, of course). Here, you can search it for “Duffy” and see how much money I made last year.
Hey, I work part-time!
The site should be rather useful for a variety of purposes, not the least of which is allowing many people to pore over enormous government documents.
The pages of the embedded document get indexed by search engines, so firms (perhaps specializing in new business intelligence) looking to increase their search-engine hits may want to embed their white papers using this site.
UPDATE: One of my students noted correctly that I failed to give proper credit to my source. Thanks to Pat Smith for filing the public records request to procure this document.
