Re: FW: Engineering Recruiting Team

I can't even get them to reply to my e-mail and I've even been
sending them relevant stuff related to turning public documents
into useful information. They have API's for everything, similar
to my suggestions on this list, and their new patent search ( which
seems to just copy the gov site ) suggests an interest in this

One thing I did ask about was their OCR projects.
Are there any cygiwin packages that can do part of this?
I never bothered to look since google was supposed to have
something in this area. I'm trying to convert
the mostly scanned drug approval documents on drugs@FDA into searchable text.

Well, has anyone followed through to see if they mean it?
