After the forced closing of Hungary’s biggest political daily Népszabadság and its archive at nol.hu K-Monitor has built a platform to let access to the articles became unaccessible with the help of volunteer programmers. The tool made the hundreds of thousands articles stored byInternet Archive available and searchable to the public. The tool is closed now as nol.hu's archive is online again. Our plan is to scale it to host other ceased news outlets.
We decided to build a platform to liberate MPs' asset declarations as they are published in scanned pdf formats no machine can read. With the help of volunteerrs we build a transparent and comparable database.
