Sheesh, if you just focussed on typing in, you could be done by now
instead of fooling around with OCR and enlisting volunteers for
something that amounts to the same beginner experiment that has been
done 10,000 times: a fundamental Lisp interpreter.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good experiment, but it really needn't
require so much trouble...

For that matter, why not write your own?  Start by replicating
McCarthy's group's initial interpreter...
